Worn out or factory fresh, what do you see?

Of the 40 million tires Mexico discards annually, only 2% are recycled. One Mexican Enactus team saw a way to recycle these discarded tires into over 100 different household items, like rugs and flowerpots.

How many families did the project empower to start their own sustainable businesses? Find out at http://enactus.org/seeopportunity/project-gallery/project/worn-factory-fresh-see/.
