Bangladesh is one of the least developed countries. Although there has been massive improvement in the economic conditions, there are people here who still cannot even afford comfortable footwear to protect their feet. It is quite alarming to think how they have to walk on their bare lefts and rights in the scorching sun with the skin below their feet as the sole of their shoes.
Having said that, it must be mentioned that in recent years Dhaka city has seen a rapid increase in the number of vehicles namely private cars, being imported.After certain period of time tires of these cars has to be replaced. Unfortunately the worn out tires that are replaced have very low use. There are no recognized recycling centers in Dhaka to convert such rubber tires to useful products. Used tires have few uses in Dhaka like covering and padding walls, sharp points of metal rods on walls. Hence, most tires are burned in an unsafe, hazardous manner that creates air pollution.
Our solution to solve this problem in a manner consistent to the scenario in Bangladesh, is to produce quality footwear namely sandals and affordable rubber shoes from recycling these tires
