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.
Upcycling is the process of taking an otherwise-discarded item or material and reusing it as-is (without further production or processing) in a way that creates a new product without compromising the integrity of the reused material. No energy or resources are needed to break the material down into its core form, so upcycling is a very effecient way to give old products new life. For example, a bag made from upcycled bicycle tire tubes would use the material as is, instead of melting and processing the rubber to form a new material. This product contains materials that are made from upcycled content.
