The November presidential election is fast approaching and as the Republican National Convention is underway some of the major issues being discussed by the candidates involve the economy, healthcare, and other topics of great importance. With all the turmoil surrounding the economy the issue of alternative energy solutions and helping the environment has been pushed to the back burner.
It is up to green-friendly businesses and organizations to ensure that the public remains aware of the seriousness of the situation and the need to go green. The irony of it all is that the Republican National Convention was delayed due to Hurricane Isaac, a sure result of global warming, but that point was ignored by the media.
Rubberecycle is a considerable contributor to the environmentally conscious community simply by manufacturing and selling rubber mulch products. Rubber flooring is made from recycled rubber tires that are thoroughly cleansed, stripped of metal fragments, and ground into chips to be used as flooring for playgrounds, horse arenas, landscaping, and more. Recycled rubber tires that have seen the end of their days are given a productive role when they are used as rubber mulch flooring.
Rubber flooring comes in the form of rubber mulch chips that are often enclosed by rubber curbs. Another form of rubber flooring is rubber bond, a poured and hardened surface that has the elasticity of conventional rubber and a clean, smooth finish. Rubber wearmats are another product of recycled rubber, used in playgrounds in areas of high impact, such as the bottom of slides. All Rubberecycle products come in various colors.
Rubberecycle has brought awareness to the importance of recycling tires, and they use entirely green practices during the manufacturing process. They have recently installed a costly solar energy system in their plant to power the machinery. For those looking for alternative energy options, this is the perfect example of a private business willing to invest for the good of the planet.
Rubberecycle is one of many businesses that use green practices and urge others to do the same, but it’s not enough. As the presidential election nears it’s time for the people to use their voices and ask the questions that need to be asked. It’s time to save the planet.
