Kudos to New Zealand for their efforts to deal with the 4 million tires the islands produce – but a special note to the tireless efforts of Mr. Owen Douglas – he spent nearly a dozen years on research, outreach, and development - making this happen. In fact, while the situation was being dealt with he offered his own farm land as a holding spot for the old tires to accumulate until they had some facility in place. An amazing hero – and we are glad to celebrate Owen Douglas here. 

The Synthetic Turf Council recently announced that as of 2011, the estimated total amount of synthetic turf installed in North America conserves more than three billion gallons of water, significantly reduces smog emissions, eliminates close to a billion pounds of harmful fertilizers and pesticides, and recycles more than 105 million used tires, annually. 

According to Liberty Tire, crumb rubber derived from recycled tires enhances the performance of a variety of sports surfaces, providing an ideal infill for sports fields and paving for running tracks. Crumb rubber adds cushioning and springiness to protect athletes, and surfaces made from crumb rubber dry quickly, drain excess moisture, reduce dust and mud, and minimize freezing. Liberty Tire Recycling reclaims more than 110 million tires annually throughout the U.S. and Canada, creating about 1.5 billion pounds of recycled rubber for smart, sustainable products.
