June Reuse and Rethink: Bike Inner Tubes!

June Reuse and Rethink: Bike Inner Tubes!

We have so many black, rubber bicycle tubes in stock! Bulk items like this are great for stretching your brain and coming up with unique ideas to create something new! These materials could be used for: jewelry, upholstery, a Catwoman costume…the possibilities are endless! Instead of throwing out your inner tubes when they become flat, reimagine them!


Here are a few examples from reuse artist and former ACR team member, Madison June (@onemademenagerie).
