Rubber, as one of the toughest and elastic material to be made into various useful household product, such as gloves, shoes, balls, tires and many more. Harvested from rubber tree in the form of latex, rubber has a lot of useful applications in combine with other materials. Thanks to their stretchy and water-proof characteristic, rubber at the same time, is very hard to decompose naturally. Similar to plastic, but better, tons of rubber-made product ends up in the landfill and can take up to 80 years to break down completely.
The disaster doesn’t just stop there, pills of rubber waste can make a huge impact on environment too. For example, it increases the fire risk, breeding ground for pest, toxin release to the environment and more.
To solve this, we can either make it in such a way that to withstand longer period of time, or more bio-degradable in nature. The existing solution to this problem however, is to recycle them. But, wear or old tyres doesn’t retain their useful characteristic anymore, therefore most of the tyres are then grinds into bits to serve as fuel energy in cement manufacturing industry.
Here we have a creative way of helping our environment as well as getting a useful item for men.
