Recycled Rubber Flooring – Eco Friendly Products

Posted on: September 25th, 2012 by

Rubber Gym FlooringConsumers and manufacturers alike are doing more and more to help preserve our environment by producing and purchasing eco friendly products.  To be able to recycle products that would otherwise end up in a dump buried under our  soil is fantastic.  Additionally, manufacturers are using raw materials that are naturally grown on our own soil.  Some companies, like, go as far as to plant trees when certain products are purchased.

I recently went to the production facility that is used to break down used tires to make different products.  The process is extensive, but well worth it.  Our playground surfacing, gym flooring in fitness centers, doggy daycare flooring and much more are using these recycled rubber products.  You probably don’t know this, but when you go into your local gym you are standing on recycled car tires.  It’s amazing what we can with a tire which used to be thrown away in dumps.
