FALLS CHURCH, Va. (May 10, 2013) — The Tire Retread & Repair Information Bureau (TRIB) is joining forces with the American Commercial Tire Network (ACTN) to develop a video that highlights the environmental benefits of tire retreading.
TRIB said the video will be placed on its YouTube Channel andthe Video Section of its website, displayed and distributed at the many trade shows TRIB attends and 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 President John Snider said the network is proud to sponsor the video.
He added, "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."
The ACTN, formed in 1999 for providing dependable emergency road service at predictable prices for non-national account customers, comprises 18 regionally diverse commercial tire dealerships operating 434 service locations, 75 retread plants and more than 1,870 service vehicles in 43 states.
