Recycled tyres create home and garden products

Mirror made from recycled tyres

It’s amazing what old tyres can be used to create!

This unusual mirror has been crafted from recycled tyres, with the tread pattern forming a decorative design around the frame. It looks really effective and very textual and each tread pattern is unique.

The tyre frame mirror is made by Tread (a company run by Karen Brierley and Anna Tutton), who specialise in producing a variety of home and garden accessories made from recycled tyres.

You can buy the mirror, and other products, from the Tread store on Not On The High Street.

Green eco recycled tyre plant pot from EcoutletEco green recycle tyre plant planter

Spring is in the air and we’ve got gardening on our mind!  If you’re planning on brightening up your garden with new plants, and are looking for some pots to use on patios, then here’s a novel way of combining planting with eco-friendly products.

These funky planters – which you can use outdoors or inside your home – are made from recycled rubber tyres. They’re long-lasting, durable, frost-proof and maintenance free, plus each planter is unique, with different tyre tread markings and dashes of colour.

When they’re not being used out in the garden, you can bring the pots indoors and use them as magazine racks or fire log baskets.

The recycled tyre garden planters are available in three sizes – small (£15), medium (£20) and large (£22) and can be purchased from Ecoutlet.
