TRIB To Produce Video Highlighting the Environmental Benefits of Retreading With Sponsorship of ACTN
FALLS CHURCH, Virginia - The Tire Retread & Repair Information Bureau (TRIB) is joining forces with the American Commercial Tire Network (ACTN) to develop a video that highlights the massive environmental benefits of tire retreading. Once produced, the video will be placed on TRIB's YouTube Channel, the Video Section of TRIB's website, 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," said 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 landfill 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," said ACTN President John Snider. "Retreading is an important part of our eighteen member companies' businesses and we're glad to help spread the word about the huge positive impacts retreading has for the environment."
TRIB is a non-profit, tax exempt 501(c)(6) industry association founded in 1974 whose goal is to provide the motoring public (both in the private and public sectors) with the most up-to-date information about the economic and environmental benefits of tire retreading and tire repairing.
