What a neat way to recycle! Gretchen is a teacher and parent at Vestal Elementary in Portland, OR. She tells us, "Students at our K-8 learn about the benefits of worms and insects in the garden, composting, systems of planting, soil amendments, plant life cycle, rainwater collection, using microclimates to grow veggie starts out of season, and the importance of finding new uses for old materials both living and recyclable." #diggingdeeper

Tires take up SO much room in our landfills... lets support those companies who repurpose them! From planters to art to furniture to playground flooring to wet umbrella baskets to firewood containers... there are so many things made out of upcycled tires! Entertain yourself with a quick Google search.
I love this bag! It is made of recycled tires or retreads, which is an awesome use of something that usually gets thrown away. It also looks like leather, and it is made in the U.S. I also love that this company, English Retreads, was started by one woman with a great idea. I can't wait to save up change to purchase one of these.
