This African artist made his artworks from used tires.
An African artist made headlines on the web after showing his incredible artworks created from used tires. With all the garbage and amount of wastes around the world, this is a big help in saving our mother nature, especially recycling and reusing.
Despite the joined efforts of environmentalists and the government to reduce the amount of garbage, the problem seems unfixed and in fact, increasing. As humans, we truly know what pollution could affect our health and the world we live in. We are all educated and informed but insensitive and selfish.
On the Facebook page Ghana in Africa posted photos of an African artist who was making amazing artworks using recycled tires. As you can see in the photos, the artistic man was picking up used and damaged tires for his artworks. This African artist used the damaged tires in creating wonderful and stunning artworks out of trash materials. Many people praised and admired him for his artwork.
According to a 2015 study by Britain’s Ellen McArthur Foundation, about 6.3 billion tonnes of plastic waste has been generated in the world so far, that’s equivalent to the average weight of more than 1 billion African bush elephants. 90 percent of this plastic waste will not decompose for at least 500 years that will result in polluting our food, water, and air.
Last year, the theme of Earth Day 2018 is to end plastic pollution by 2020 that was observed across the globe. This won’t be easy but through our collective efforts, we can make the world a cleaner and beautiful place to live in once again.
