JULY 2006: Walking on tires
Recycling saves the environment. We are very familiar with this statement for decades already. And not only in the Netherlands are citizens aware of the advantages of recycling waste materials. For instance, used tires most probably will be reused in road construction and in building activities. In Brazil, the stiff rubber of tires is also used for another purpose: rubber-soled leather shoes and flip flops. As a result, you might buy black flip flops with brand logos of Michelin, Goodyear, Pirelli or Bridgestone on the sole. Such shoes and flip flops are quite inexpensive.
