Save old inner tubes from landfill!

We're a Staffordshire based charity, we do lots of great things, but our newest venture is collecting old inner tubes saving them from landfill recycling by sending them over to our partners in Malawi Africa. The township tailors then turn these old used inner tubes into wallets, phone cases, glass cases, pencil cases and money pockets.

The tailors are employed in a country where there is no welfare state, the items are then brought back to the UK where we sell them for our charity, the money raised goes into funding childcare in Africa.

We are absolutely desperate for as many inner tubes as we can possibly lay our hands on.
We were wondering what the possibility of you contacting all your cycling clubs, we'd love it if they could post them to us at:

Krizevac Project
Atlas Works
Paragon Road
Longton
Stoke on Trent
ST3 1NR

I'm sure you have more questions for us and how this would work in vast quantities, please contact me on the number below.



Kind Regards

As admirable a venture as this may be, tubes degrade very rapidly and I don't imagine they are a problem in landfill. Surely any product made from them is on the verge of disintegrating by the time it's sold?
