At last estimate, Americans cast off about 290 million tires a year. Recycling these tires into ground rubber mulch prevents them from taking up space in landfills. It also helps cut down on factory waste, which in turn reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

Rubber Mulch in Non-Toxic

According to the EPA, recycled rubber poses no significant health or environmental risk. Rubber mulch is safe for use around children and pets, and it has been endorsed for use in cushioning playground surfaces.
