So true story… a few months back I was driving my littles to the park (only driving about 15 mph since we were in a residential neighborhood) when I collided drove too close to the curb and blew my front passenger tire. My husband and I put the spare on in its place and headed to the tire shop where they quickly got me back on the road with a replacement tire and my spare put back in its place. The employee I was speaking to told me that because the tire was in fairly good shape (besides the golf ball sized shredded area, oops!) it was eligible to be recycled. I asked if he meant upcycled and he looked at me as if asking, “Girl, what ARE you talking about?” Haha! I guess he didn’t realize I was a DIY blogger or see where I was going with my line of questioning… like making a Recycled Tire Christmas Tree Base!
