Crumb rubber is beneficial and infinitely useful to our customers; it can be seen all over, every day. By reusing old tires to create crumb rubber, we are giving new life to materials that otherwise would have been simply disposed of in the landfill, and that simply doesn’t do it for us.
Here are some examples of how crumb rubber is utilized in everyday materials and products, viewable just on your way to the office or the grocery store. Truly, no matter where you’re headed in life, our work makes a difference.
Making a meal in the kitchen…
Crumb rubber is a necessary component in anti-fatigue mats, often used in professional kitchens by chefs who spend long hours on their feet all day, or anyone who spends a lot of time on their feet. Wherever the magic happens, these mats make it a little easier. The springy material offers a soft cushion, benefitting the user’s feet, knees and spine. This is crucial to anyone who can’t (or won’t) relieve their joints by sitting down regularly.
Entering the workplace…
No home or business is really complete without a welcome mat just outside the front door, inviting friends, employees and even family to come inside and make themselves at home. Think about it: your successful company’s exterior wouldn’t be the same without a sturdy welcome mat out front!
Yes, most sturdy welcome mats are composed of crumb rubber. This material is extremely weather-resistant, meaning your welcome mat can handle ice, snow, sleet, torrents of rain and even getting baked by the summer sun during the hot summer months.
Driving down the road…
If you own a vehicle, you need to start appreciating old tires. Crumb rubber has literally been used to pave the way for drivers for some time now.
The fact is, rubberized asphalt highways last longer than their asphalt counterparts. Not only do they provide a smoother ride for the driver, they even use less paving material than traditional asphalt. Thanks to ECO Green’s recycling of old tires, people behind the wheel enjoy less time navigating around cracks and potholes and more time staying safe.
Roads composed of crumb rubber (some other filler and binders must also be used during the process) even age better than asphalt. This means that construction workers aren’t constantly creating roadblocks during your lunch hour, or whenever you have to get somewhere on time. Commute time is shortened, and your whole day seems more enjoyable. This is all thanks to the useful properties and functions of crumb rubber.
We know crumb rubber is useful to our customers, no matter how they go about their day during the week. By recycling old tires to create crumb rubber, ECO Green has the opportunity to really give back to Mother Nature.
