Mulch Busters


We dive deep to uncover the truth about recycled rubber mulch and why this eco-friendly product continues to get a bad rap. The question remains: is recycled rubber mulch a better alternative to other flooring options? Here are some myths, busted. 
 
Myth:
Rubber mulch is bad for the environment and ruins horticulture
Fact:
We face several different environmental issues, daily. Waste management remains the biggest problem. One solution to this is by opting to invest in products that focus on waste diversion and upcycling. In fact, organic wood mulch causes more environmental harm than good because it uses new wood as oppose to recovered bark decreasing forestry and endangering wildlife.

 
Myth:
Sand and rubber are equal in its safety ratings because they are both soft surfaces.
Fact:
Rubber is shock absorbent, meaning it provides more cushioning to falls than its opponent, sand, making it an excellent alternative to playgrounds and schoolyards.

Myth
Rubber mulch costs the same or more in comparison to wood.
Fact:
Because rubber weighs more than wood, it does not easily blow away. What does this mean long-term? Savings, because you have to ‘top up’ your mulch less often.

Myth:
Wood looks better.
Fact:
Rubber mulch comes in a variety of different colours which means there are no limitations to what’s available.
