Posted:I would have put this in the Falmouth 4 thread but I thought it might get lost in the madness! ubbloco



I make all sorts of things out of recycled rubber, from Devil Sticks to crazy accessories and soon I'm going to have a go at some simple clothing.



I use old inner tubes for most of it and I normally get this from cycle shops but Taunton only has a limited number and I am not able to get much from them.



I was wondering if people would be so kind as to pop into their local cycle shop and ask them for their old inner tubes and then bring them to falmouth. These places are normally very happy to give old inner tubes away, usually they are just binned.



Anyone who does will be rewarded with yummy magic(or not magic if preferred) chocolate brownie made to my grandmothers recipe. Its super yummy! Also you will be helping the environment by recycling! biggrin
