One person’s trash is another person’s treasure, so goes the old adage, but two women—Ojaswi Baidya and Loonibha Manandhar—seem to have taken this saying to heart. They are co-founders of Tyre Treasure, a company that turns old, used tyres from cars, trucks and buses into recycled furniture.

With struggles of finding workers and producers to people not delivering on promises, Loonibha remembered the intense work hours she had to put in juggling with her Thesis, Research program, and the company. However, she doesn’t regret the hard work. She says, “I had dreams of becoming many things from a CA to Designer to Innovator and today as an Entrepreneur I can be all. And that’s all my dreams coming true.”

Baidhya and Manandhar spend days coming up with new designs and ideas to create new products with tyres. “We don’t want to create products just for the sake of recycling. We want to manufacture functional products that people would actually use,” admits Baidya.

From their study, they found the tyres being used as a raw material in the brick industry to make fire but this is not eco-friendly as it produces poisonous gases upon burning and if left unattended, becomes waste for environment pollution.
