Keeping Things Green With ReThink Tires

Leave a Comment

Winter is my least favourite season of all. One thing I really dislike about it (besides the snow, cold, ice, and darkness) is the mess. As soon as we come inside and take off our boots, our entrance way is wet, with snow everywhere. Of course, stepping in puddles of slush is no fun, either.

I love simple solutions for keeping my entrance way looking as neat and clean as possible, since it's the first thing people see when they walk into my home. We have mirrored closet doors, hooks to hang up our coats, a neat shoe compartment from IKEA built on a wall, and now, thanks to Ontario Tire Stewardship, two products that make our entrance way cleaner.

Ontario Tire Stewardship is a not-for-profit organization championing waste diversion that works with a network of industry partners to collect and recycle used tired. OTS's Used Tires program has successfully diverted more than 100 million tires from landfills since 2009. The tires get safely recycled into new products, leading to hundreds of new jobs in this province, making communities more livable, and helping grow a green economy. 

I received the Traffic Master Scalloped Master Boot Tray– an essential product that holds all our boots so our floors aren't soaked with mud and slush anymore. The boot tray traps the wetness and dirt, and with its raised design, floors remain clean. It's also simple to clean, too.

Another product I received is the Traffic Master Recycled Rubber Floormat. I put this down in our entrance way, and it does the trick to keep things clean. It's durable and eco-friendly with a non-slip backing to reduce movement and help prevent accidents. Since it's weather-resistant and stain-resistant, this mat is ideal for outdoor use at the front door, patio, and garage in the summertime, too.

I love that the products I'm using have been made from recycled tires; besides being environmentally friendly, these products are also fire-resistant, long-lasting, durable and low-maintenance, and cost-effective. And every little bit we can do to help the environment is a good thing.

Visit to see a wide variety of recycled rubber mats and other great products that will help keep your hallway clean–and say goodbye to puddles and wet socks. You can even drop off your old tires at a registered collector near you. If you're doing any home renovation projects, is a great resource for information on sustainable recycled tire products and projects, too.
