The common disposal method of tires in Nepal is burning them. In response to black billowing clouds of smoke, one of Ganesh Himal Trading’s producer groups offered to purchase numerous tires in hopes of improving air quality. From these tires came the first of Ganesh Himal Trading’s tire bags which today has developed into over 40 products! The bags have become SO popular that the gentleman responsible for burning the tires now has a full-time job searching the Kathmandu valley for MORE tires. Unlike scrap rubber from factories, our rubber has seen many miles of Nepali roads making each one entirely unique! This is sourcing raw materials at its finest!
