Better than Rubber Duckies

About 242 million tires are tossed each year in the United States. Of that 243 million only 7% is recycled, and the majority of the tires end up in landfills, stockpiles or are illegally discarded. Minarc, a design firm based in California, has developed RUBBiSH Recycled Rubber Sink. To make the sink tires are cleaned, melted down and then made into thin sheets. The sheets are then stretched over frames that are either wood or metal. Black is not for everyone but the sinks may also be framed in aluminum to disguise it.
