Amarildo Silva Filho, who lives in Campina Grande, Brazil, has taken recycling to a whole new level. Noticing how several stray dogs used tires as shelter on the street, Silva started taking the littered tires off the streets and upcycling them into the most beautiful beds homeless cats and dogs.

The 23-year-old artist was working at a grocery store but couldn’t ignore the ever mounting trash on the streets. Feeling like he wasn’t properly satisfied with his current job, the handyman always enjoyed turning discarded things into something people could use again.

Silva starts the transformation process by cleaning off each tire, giving it a fresh coat of paint, and installing a tiny mattress into the center.

Over the last two years the gifted artist has turned more than 6,000 tires into cozy animal beds and some he even turns into planters.

Amarildo’s animal beds have attracted so much attention he’s even getting orders for them from around the world. His desire to turn something that litters the streets into something so beautiful and practical is inspiring.

By making the beds, the artist is able to do two things: help animals and make crafts on a regular basis. It has been two years since he started, and Silva has no intention of stopping. In fact, the artist hopes that the project will contribute to a more sustainable world by generating more innovative ideas.
