Nigerian Woman Quits Job to turn Tires into Elegant Furniture

There are many examples of big companies turning plastic or ocean waste into furniture and other household items. We have also seen a number of individuals turning discarded materials into useful products. Another eco-enthusiast going in the same direction is Nigeria-based Olabanke Banjo, founder and CEO of Cyrus45, who repurposes old unused tires into functional furniture.

Olabanke quit her job in order to pursue a new environmental career that combined her sense of creativity with an affinity for the environment. Since she is transforming tires into functional furniture items including chairs, ottomans, coffee tables and more.

Olabanke’s repurposed furniture not only helps clean up the environment, but is designed to elegantly match with modern home décor. Her unique designs feature a stunning African flair with a modern touch.   

Nowadays, she sources used tires from refuse centers, incinerators, and individuals looking to replace the ones on their vehicle, as well as pick them up from the sides of the road.
