It’s shocking how much can be recycled but isn’t. A London-based group, Wastewatch.org, found in a study that households in the UK are recycling more than 20 per cent of their rubbish on average. This figure sounds OK until you realise that over 60 per cent of what we throw away is actually recyclable material. Basic awareness and campaigns of what can actually be recycled from within our households will dramatically bump up that percentage. Recycling is easy, convenient, and more people will if they know exactly what can be taken out of the rubbish bin.

Yes, apparel made from rubber tyres is just one of items making their way from the rubbish tip, to the catwalk and to the high street. Clothing made from old rubber tyres look and feel like those made from more common materials.
Many say that the items are more comfortable than cotton-based coating. For cleaning, a dash of Armor All and you'll be simply dazzling!
