What Happens to Your Old Tires?
Searching for information on how old products can take on a new life? Look at the work of Ontario Tire Stewardship (OTS), which ensures that the 12 million tires sold each year in the province are responsibly recycled and reused. OTS directs these scrap tires to recyclers and manufacturers who make new green products. Multy Home is one manufacturer that produces envirotile™, sustainable and decorative flooring made with recycled materials that can be used on any flat surface including balconies, patios, decks, sun-rooms, pools, playgrounds and sheds. Durable and weather resistant, envirotile™ does not leach toxins and has greater capacity to absorb noise and shock. To learn more visit www.GreenMyTires.ca, Twitter: @GreenMyTires.
