Recycled Tires Are Turned into Jewelry, Flooring, Shoes and More

 - Nov 21, 2012
With more cars on the road than ever before, the need for practical uses for the recycled tires is vital to environmental sustainability. Innovations in recycled tires have exploded in recent years and the variety of applications is exciting.

Beginning with the most obvious, old recycled tires are often used as barrier material for winding raceways. They provide a cushioned guide for race cars and since tracks are often significantly long, there is room for tons of recycled tires.

Footwear also recently embraced recycled tires as a material useful for the soles of shoes. Interior decor ideas like tire chandeliers, tire chairs and tire pots all bring the recycled tires inside your home for an industrial chic look.
