A Feel Good Story: Amarildo Silva

Here at Pet Guardians we love a feel-good story and this one’s a corker!

It not only benefits animals but the environment too and even you can help!

Meet Amarildo Silva, a 23-year-old artist and entrepreneur from Brazil.

In Amarildo's spare time, he collects and transforms discarded tyres into beautiful circular animal beds. His family helps him find the old tyres and he then cleans out so they are like new and adds a fresh coat of paint. He then inserts a circular cushion for the pets to sleep on, which me makes himself with a sewing machine.

Through the power of Instagram, he's managed to sell over 500 beds in 2 years! We love the impact these eco-friendly animal beds are having on reducing waste on the planet.
