Rubber Mulch Sustainability – Green LEED Building Material

LEED Credits Sustainable Green Building Material Rubber Mulch Sustainable Green Building MaterialGroundSmart Rubber Mulch, and our parent companies, Liberty Tire Recycling and LTR Products, are committed to creating environmentally-friendly and sustainable products that serve both our customers and our planet. In addition to making Landscaping, Playgrounds, Parks, Horse Arenas and other Equestrian Areas, Training Courses and Ballistic Ranges safer, more efficient and more attractive, the rubber we recycle removes millions of tires from the waste stream and converts them into smart, sustainable green building materials and products that improve people’s lives. Let us help with your Corporate Sustainability and Green Building (LEED) efforts. Download our LEED Sheet (PDF)

Reduce
GroundSmart Rubber Mulch lasts up to 12 times longer than traditional wood mulch and similar materials, so you don’t have to replace it yearly, and you get up to 2x the coverage compared with wood mulch. When you factor in the manufacturing, delivery and placement of yearly mulch, Rubber Mulch’s carbon footprint is over 90% lower over the life of the product. Using less saves money, too, up to 65% over the first 5 years.

Re-Use
The tires Liberty, LTR Products and GroundSmart Rubber Mulch remove from the waste stream would end up in landfills throughout North America, instead of being re-used to make landscaping, playgrounds and other areas safer, more efficient and more attractive. Extending the life of the rubber in spent tires maximizes the return on our society’s investment in the cost of the original rubber, the tire manufacturing processes and the shipping, delivery and disposal of the products.

Recycle
Liberty Tire Recycling transforms 110,000,000 tires annually into raw materials for smart, sustainable products that improve people’s lives. Liberty is the premier provider of tire recycling services in the United States – handling over 33% of the nation’s discarded tires.
