Tires Recycled Into Farm Tools


Chinese farms are the ultimate in thriftiness. Old tires are recycled into all kinds of useful gear. Here is a horse feed tub made from a tire turned inside out. I saw these everywhere.

And here is a water bucket for dropping into a well sewn from old tires.

    Is it safe to drink from old tires?

    I think we have such trouble recycling tires in the US because we all switched to tires with steel belts at some point. It improves handling and the tires last longer, but I’ve always had the idea that it was more dangerous to try and cut them up.

    I did find a lot of tire recycling ideas here:
