Rubberecycle: Keeping Things Safe and Green

Rubberecycle Rubber Mulch makes it easy to go to the playground and stay safe. I remember when playgrounds were paved in cement (which I talked about in the previous post). But now, Playsfer Rubber Mulch is used to carpet playground areas and keep kids safe when they fall. It comes in a variety of colors, too: Terracotta Red, Forest Green, Royal Blue, Cocoa Brown and Basic Black. Best of all, the rubber chunks and chips that make up the mulch is made from 100% recycled scrap tires, so it is green and environmentally friendly. The playground at my kids' old grade school was redone using rubber mulch, and it was wonderful to see what a difference it made - no more scrapes and dangerous tumbles!

Rubberecycle keeps racehorses safe in the arena, too, with Surefoot arena footing that lasts for years, and stays clean and insect-free. It also cushions the horses' joints so that they can run more comfortably (I'm sure that children's joints are also cushioned by the Playsfer). Surefoot comes in the same colors as the Playsfer Rubber Mulch, and is mixed with sand for strength and stability.

Rubberecycle rubber mulch products stay safe and unfrozen all winter, and theywill last for years without excessive maintenance. Rubberecycle also makes rubber curbs for playgrounds (a fabulous idea, because I remember form my own playground-mom days how many little kids are curb-level and bump themselves badly on them), and mulch for soil-protecting garden ground cover. All of these products keep things safer while preserving the environment too: a win-win situation for us and for the earth.
