Students in Senegal are turning trash into furniture by making benches out of old tires and garbage thanks to a recycling project launched by French NGO, 3000 Ecomen. They made 400 recycled tables and benches of 900 car tires and 60 tons of garbage for a university campus. Senegal produces around 2 million tons of waste each year. 3000 Ecomen hopes to help reduce that number with this recycling project.
