Laura Zabo

Laura Zabo strives to create a cleaner world by upcycling scrap tires. Working with discarded bicycle/car tires and inner tubes that she saves from a future as landfill, she has developed a visually stunning and environmentally focused selection of belts, jewellery, sandals, shoe soles, and even clothing.

The abundance of trash is a tremendous problem for our planet, and we need to make more room for ideas that help us get rid of it or transform the excess, instead of producing more and more.

The Course
Upcycling and Creating Jewellery from Bike Tyre Rubber and Inner Tubes

Today we live in a very unstable world and the future is unpredictable. Global warming, inflation, viruses, warzones and lot of depression and anxiety follows our journey. 

We need to find ways that support a conscious life, protect our planet, and offer financial security.

Join me in this unique live series where I will share the secrets of tyre upcycling, interesting stories about my inspirations, challenges, and the skills that I had to learn to become a successful upcycler. 

  • Learn a skill for yourself and surprise others with your new talent by creating memorable gifts. This new skill might lead you to earn some extra money, but also gives you the opportunity to refind yourself and build a new career 
  • Once you are an “upcycler” your vision on shopping will change dramatically, you will prefer to repair, than to buy new, will choose more and more often second hand items. Crafting is a brilliant skill because it reduces stress, boosts self-esteem, you will enjoy much more your life and your social activities.
  • Tyre rubber is called the vegan leather, because it offers similar attributions, without harming our nature. Working with scarp rubber improves your creativity.

Wearing tyre is brave and different. Are you ready to stand out from the crowd?

I came across Lara at Tonbridge Xmas Vegan Fayre in November 2021. I was immediately completely smitten with her beautiful jewellery and amazing designs. There is no Planet B! As a species, we waste so much. Lara is doing her bit to help minimise that waste, and create gorgeous accessories at the same time. I have now purchased so many of her pieces, and have never ever been disappointed. The quality is fabulous, the colours are bright and inviting, and her costs are so reasonable. It’s a total win win. :hearts::hearts::hearts:

Claire

As always, Laura doesn’t disappoint! Her jewelry is unique and environmentally conscious. I get so many comments on her pieces and truly love wearing them. Thanks again Laura!
