TIRES INTO FASHION BY Laura Zabo
TIRES INTO FASHION
My upcycling journey began three years ago while I was exploring the beautiful country of Tanzania. The moment which changed my life was when I caught sight of some handmade brightly-painted sandals at a Maasai market. These innovative sandals were made entirely out of repurposed car tires. I immediately fell in love with the idea that functional products could be created out of trash, and I knew that I simply had to share this brilliant idea with the world.

ZABO ZERO WASTE SCHEME:
If you have bought a ZABO product at any time but no longer use it for any reason, we offer a discount on your next purchase if you send it back to us instead of throwing it away. In this way we can continue to upcycle these tires, so that the waste is minimised as much as possible.
Join the movement
By purchasing a ZABO item, you help to save 1 tire from a landfill. Scrap tires are a rapidly growing problem on this planet, with over 3 billion ti
res dumped globally every year. They take decades to break down and often pile up on landfill sites, taking up valuable space and clogging up our planet. We need to find imaginative and creative eco-solutions for the increasing amount of waste on our planet and transform it into useful and sustainable treasure.
Why Fast-Fashion Brands Are Under Pressure To Change Their Ways
It is becoming harder and harder for us to love our clothes and wear them the way we once did when we are being faced with more insights into the way in which they are being made and produced. Fast fashion is becoming an increasingly worrisome problem, as the industry focuses on speed and costs rather than the environment and those working in the factories.
