Sunday, April 10, 2011 review

There isn't much I can say about this company. They seem very legitimate by all indications (domain name registered more than 10 years ago, with the physical address of the company, no complaints on the web, etc). Their goal seems also very laudable: creating playground surfacing out of recycled tire rubber. While I don’t have enough information to ascertain if this is truly more eco-friendly than getting rid of the tires in other ways (burning them for example – there are many factors here – the recycling process itself might consume a larger amount of energy – see a similar issue with the fact that placing solar panels in the Sahara desert might actually increase global warming), reusing is always a laudable goal.

The company is also relatively media-savvy: they have a (Facebook) like button on their website, they have a blog and their site is relatively nice looking (even more important: it doesn’t look like one of the stock templates from designers). The only thing you can’t do is to order online, but probably it’s better this way, since we are talking about relatively large amount of material (and automatically large amount of money) so a personal contact is a better option. Also, I didn’t see any indication that they ship outside of the USA, probably for the same reason.

Thumbs up for a small-medium business which has a good product!
