More About This Experience

Environmental awareness is increasing steadily through global governmental summits and regional legislations. Discussions on the environment and a sustainable future often focus on how to get rid of the large piles of 'problems' which has been collected over the years. Old disuesd vehicle tyres are one of the most harmful for the environment so why don't we reused them instead of throwing to the landfill? Tyre bags will be the strongest bag you have ever used. What used to carry cars through thousands of kilometers in rough terrain will now store your most precious belongings. They will properly safeguard your possessions through rain or shine and survive through the ages with minimum wear and tear, even just throwing in a landfill takes its thousands of years to breakdown a little, so you can trust in your new hardy little companion! And at Backstreet Academy, your host will help you to create your own designs and give these discarded resources a new lease of artistic life.

We definitely learned a new skill! It was 1st time machine using for us not even mentioning the tire! We got a little bit of an idea about designing and the making process. We were happy also to learn about our hosts background and history. Also learned there are english classes run at their house. We loved every minute of beeing there.
