Each year, ECORE recycles over 80 million pounds of scrap tire rubber, saving over 1 million barrels of oil and keeping over 2,000 trailer loads of discarded tires out of our nation’s landfills.
Recycling that many tires and saving over 1 million barrels of oil - that is equal to heating 600 homes for a year!
By adding Nike Grind rubber to Everlast sports surfacing, we are diverting over 300,000 lbs. of rubber from landfills each year, which is equivalent to the outsoles from nearly 700,000 pairs of sneakers.
It takes half a barrel of crude oil to produce the rubber for just one truck tire.
Producing one pound of recycled rubber versus one pound of new rubber requires only 29% of the energy.
