Upcycled rubber can be salvaged from items like bicycle inner tubes or truck tires to make new products. The rubber is cleaned, cut, and sewn into new shapes to form durable and water resistant items like bags, wallets, and belts. Upcycling rubber tires can free up space in landfills and prevent chemicals from leaching into the ground when tires are disposed of. Recycling rubber lowers greenhouse gas emissions by reducing the amount of energy used and resources extracted create new rubber products, as most rubber products are synthetic and petroleum based.
