    Sadly tires are SUPER toxic so please don’t grow food in them and if kids are touching them be sure they wash their hands very well after.

    And tires rarely go to recycling centers when they are “recycled” they go to town’s like mine and are burned in plants like the cement plant in my town. People like me are then forced to breath the toxics they put into the air, causing increased cancer rates, asthma, and so many other health issues.

    You know I love the way they incorporate tires into green building. Some even use them as the walls and pour concrete in the holes. I also wouldn’t recommend growing food in tires.

    I love your idea to buy used tires for the purpose of making a tire swing! We just moved into a new home and there are some beautiful oak trees on the property that would make great spots to hang a swing from. I think that when we are working on the patio in the backyard we could probably throw something together to put on the tree for the kids to play with.
