You can purchase ecoSHRED rubber mulch in 24 lb. sacks or in our 2,000 lb. super sacks.
Based on testing by the Federal Hazardous Substance Act (16 CFR 1500.44) in 1995, rubber mulch was found to be a non-flammable material.
Initially, there will be an odor from a newly opened bag of mulch but once installed the smell dissipates very quickly.
The short answer is, YES!
More specifically, when we recycle semi-truck tires, that avoids this material from filling up our landfills. ecoSHRED rubber mulch is made from 100% recycled material and keeps over 22 million pounds of used tires from going to the landfill.
Additionally, countless trees are saved when a home or business uses ecoSHRED rubber mulch instead of wood mulch. Wood mulch washes away, fades easily, and deteriorates quickly, so it needs to be replaced yearly (at least!). But ecoSHRED lasts nearly forever! Think of all of the trees you are saving!
It’s important to also note that ecoSHRED is non-toxic, not harmful to plants, soil, and ground water.
The temperature of rubber mulch will be equivalent to wood mulch, sand, or pea gravel.
ecoSHRED rubber mulch will keep the soil under it 10% cooler in the summer and 10% warmer in the winter. Rubber mulch does a better job of insulating outdoor plants from heat compared to wood chips and other organic materials.
In ‘Indoor’ gardens like sun-rooms and solariums, it is especially beneficial because it does not break down and emit a rotting smell.
ecoSHRED is much more protective in terms of falls or accidents than wood mulch.
Additionally, our rubber mulch is non-toxic. If a child or pet swallows a rubber nugget, it will not permanently injure them. They may experience some stomach discomfort at the beginning, but as the hydrochloric acid (stomach acid) does its work the nylon will be dissolved and the rubber will be expelled by the body with no lasting effects.
Since ecoSHRED employs UV resistant technology, it will hold its color for at least 10 years!
Unlike wood mulch, ecoSHRED helps repel pests that destroy plants and flowers. Unlike soil and wood, rubber isn’t attractive for insects to build nests in or gnaw on. This is particularly true for ants and termites. Some even use rubber mulch as a sort of insulation around their homes to keep insects at bay.
Safer when slips & falls occur than wood mulch. Plus, no splinters!
ecoSHRED is available in 12 colors and will make any playground instantly more aesthetically appealing.
Unlike wood mulch, you don’t have to replace ecoSHRED rubber mulch. It lasts nearly forever!
