Rubberecycle


Like most automobile owners and drivers my tires wear out.  I am a high mileage driver, so it appears to me I am in my friendly local tire store either replacing worn tires or a damaged tire.  One day there was a large semi truck loading tires from the back of the shop.  The truck was full when it pulled out of the parking lot.  I asked Charlie the manager, "I wonder what happens to all of those tires?"  Charlie smiled and said, "They go to a company called Rubbercycle."  After further inquiry I learned this company made recycled rubber mulch.  Sometimes it is called shredded rubber mulch.  Another customer in the tire store overheard the conversation and said he had visited Washington DC and learned the first family in the White House used one companies shredded rubber mulch for their playground.
I must admit this was new information for me and I was both surprised and pleased with the ingenuity. 
When I left the tire store I searched online to learn about this product and the company.  The web site for the company is  Rubberecycle.com.  Rubberecycle Playsafer Rubber Mulch is new in Playground and Landscape surfacing which is environmentally safe. The Rubbercycle company manufactures an innovative rubber granulite product recycled 100% from scrap tires.  This product is used in school playgrounds across the country.  Consumers love the rubber mulch because it’s safe, economical, long-lasting and most importantly, environment-friendly.  You can read all about how innovative this company is and the many uses of the product at  rubbercycle.com.  The rubbermulch is very surefooted and is safe enough for equestrian footing.  As a parent watching children play if it is surefooted for a horse it is safe enough for my child.  Watching children run, jump, and move around the school playground safety is always on my mind.  I could see advantages from a parents viewpoint.  
Looking at the environment is also important and with this product it is very protective of our environment and it lasts for many years.  If rubber can hold up on the highways under the weight of a car how much more will it withstand the tiny feet of children or even horses--to me this product is very exciting.

  2. We use rubbercyle for the playground near my school, I guess it makes it safer for kids as they go down those huge slides and swing high and low.

  4. I find that old tyres are great for growing potatoes in.
    Get about 3 tyres and bolt them one on top of the other then fill with compost and grow potatoes, leeks or ever onions in them.
