Lock, Stock and Tires

img_3016

I just got a call from my contact in the Gambia: what do I want to do with the tires that are left on the compound, now that the walls are coming up? The ones we didn’t use to build with? The ugly, worn out or strangely shaped ones? And suddenly I’m facing the same dilemma as people are facing in the Gambia: what to do with tires you don’t need anymore? The dilemma that made me decide to do something new: build with them. ¬†Well, please don’t burn them, that’s for shure! For now, I want to keep them and see what to do later. And I ‘m happy I was asked, because sustainability is not the first thing people think about in the Gambia. Not yet.
