When we embark on a space voyage we carry our environment with us. We stock all of the food, water, and oxygen we need for the duration. It’s just the same on spaceship earth. We carry our environment with us as our planet circles the sun.
Just as we wouldn’t disrupt the critical systems keeping us alive on a spaceship, we need to protect the natural systems here on our home world. The air we breath, the water we drink, the soil we till, and the plants and animals that comfort and sustain us.
Roadrunner Rubber cares deeply about preserving our home because it’s the only one we have. Roadrunner helps keep earth’s critical systems clean with our zinc free forklift tires.
When zinc seeps into the environment it threatens earth’s critical systems and, ultimately, us.
Zinc primarily infiltrates the environment in stormwater runoff through:*
- Galvanized metals
- Motor oils & hydraulic fluids
- Tire dust from forklifts, trucks, and other vehicles
Roadrunner Rubber’s 99% zinc free tires protect the environment, helping keep our planet’s critical systems in clean, working order.
While Roadrunner’s zinc free tires help keep our environment clean and working, our tires also keep you and your machines working cleaner, longer.
But don’t just take our word for it. A 2008 publication by the Washington State Department of Ecology recommends, by name, using Roadrunner Rubber tires to help reduce zinc in the environment.*
Do your part. Install Roadrunner Rubber’s zinc free tires on your machines today and help preserve and protect our precious environment for all time.
