Description

The tire, such a story!

In 1887, it is a veterinarian, Mr. John Boyd Dunlop, who invented the tire; but it was a French in 1830, who dressed for the first time a vehicle wheel with rubber bands.

Today, more than 200 materials are used in the manufacture of a tire. It’s carbon footprint is high.

To counteract, a solution is recycling.

And what could be more consistent than using recycled material for trash sorting?

At the Ecolodge Chartrons Véronique Daudin has chosen to equip her accomodation with this item useful, eco-friendly and design.
