Rubber sidewalks surely have to be on every town councils supplier list. Taking into account just about every issue a counciler may face these beauties are backed by the government of California and are the best example mulitple problem solving this trend hunter has ever seen. For this reason I would expect to see this product in cities round the world in the coming decade.
Rubber sidewalks solve the following problems.
recyclye used tyres keeping them out of landfills /burning toxic fumes into the atmosphere
reduce concrete production, a process that emits one ton of Co2 per one ton produced--cleaner air
increases health of suburban trees by allowing tree/root maintenance
You are less likely to injure yourself falling on rubber than concrete (daaahhh...)
no more unevan pave walks to trip on
looks better than concrete and comes in a host of colours
no more need to dig up old concrete as easily replacable
And it's bouncy to run and walk on!!!! like exercising on Mars!!
This product is amazing and contributes to communities in so many ways. It is the ultimate item to market as it causes no harm and has so much appeal.
Look for this product around the sidewalks as you travel round the world...its a product of the future.
