Interested parties are urged to visit www.tireindustry.org/treadsofcare.asp and to provide a link to this page from their websites and via social media posts.   

Green is for retreads

Retreaded tires are one of the most environmentally friendly of all recycled products. They contain one of the highest post consumer contents, since the actual tire itself is being recycled. In fact, according to Harvey Brodskey, managing director of the California-based Tire Retread & Repair Information Bureau (TRIB), retreading was "green" before the word was ever used for recycling, and the retread industry has been green for nearly 100 years!

Retreaded tires are one of the most environmentally friendly of all recycled products, and contain one of the highest post-consumer contents. Every time a tire is retreaded there is one less tire to go to our overcrowded landfills.
