Those four rubber tires that make your car go round won’t last forever, unfortunately they don’t even really last all that long. At least every few years you have to buy a new set of tires, at which point your bulky old tires become toxic waste.

As mounds upon mounds of tires sit decomposing in landfills they leak toxic chemicals into the surrounding ground, which has long-term consequences for the environment and its fragile eco-systems, ours included. You can help reduce waste in landfills by reusing things instead of simply throwing them away, even the old tires on your car can be salvaged into something super cool.

Save the planet and have some fun with these awesome DIY ways to recycled old tires.
