TRIB, GSA promote retreads for Earth Day
TRIB has a powerful ally in promoting retreaded tires. In recognition of Earth Day, on April 21, 2011, the Tire Retread & Repair Information Bureau (TRIB) will join forces with the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) in promoting the environmental and economic benefits of using retreaded tires.
"Every year in North America, the use of retreaded tires saves hundreds of millions of gallons of oil, keeps millions of tires out of landfill and significantly reduces carbon emissions," says TRIB Managing Director David Stevens. "TRIB continues to do all we can to promote the environmental and economic benefits of retreaded tires and we're pleased to partner with the GSA to spread this message to the Federal Government."
At the event, Stevens will man a booth alongside GSA Fleet Manager Kathleen Rowan to promote the use of retreaded tires to various GSA fleet management professionals.
The GSA is using its government-wide influence to reduce the environmental impact of the Federal Government as part of its Sustainability Plan. This Plan, the significant cost savings of retreaded tires, and Executive Order 13149 (Greening the Government Through Federal Fleet and Transportation Efficiency), provide three powerful incentives for the use of retreaded tires by Federal fleets.
