The Tire Retread & Repair Information Bureau (TRIB) has joined forces with the American Commercial Tire Network (ACTN) to launch a video that highlights the environmental benefits of tire retreading.

The video can be seen on TRIB's YouTube channel, the Video Section of TRIB's website, and will be displayed and distributed at the many trade shows TRIB attends, as well as offered to news outlets to highlight the positive environmental aspects of tire retreading.

"Tire retreading is one of the original green industries," says TRIB managing director David Stevens.

"It conserves huge amounts of raw materials, including oil and steel, reduces carbon dioxide output, keeps millions of tires out of landfills every year, and eventually helps with the careful recycling of end-of-life tires to be used in other applications such as pavement and rubber mulch."

"ACTN is proud to sponsor this video with TRIB," says ACTN president John Snider. "Retreading is an important part of our 18 member companies' businesses and we're glad to help spread the word about the huge positive impacts retreading has for the environment."

Stevens also encouraged companies in the retread and repair industries to provide links to the video on their websites using the following links:
