Getting Real About Rubber
Here’s the thing about rubber: You can use it, abuse it, shred it, and repurpose it—infinitely. So, why are people throwing away their tires when the treads go bald or, worse, burning them? Not only is this contributing to widespread pollution, but it’s economically wasteful.
Ecore has been reimagining the lifecycle of rubber, starting at the so-called end. We intercept rubber waste and use it to create performance flooring that's better for people and the planet. This goes beyond recycling; it’s upcycling, harnessing the inherent characteristics of rubber to do more.
Rubber is gold.
Let's stop throwing it away.

Sustain | Ability
Upcycling is just part of what we’re doing to become sustainable. We’ve spent decades refining our process to reduce harmful emissions, conserve water, and reuse our scraps.
We’re here to show other manufacturers that sustainability can equal profitability. By intercepting rubber from waste streams and pioneering an efficient manufacturing process, we’re able to make looks-great, feels-even-better flooring for everyone.

The Future Is Circular
Sustainable practices like these are the first step toward a future where rubber is never wasted. But we can’t get there alone—businesses and consumers need to understand their roles in the circular rubber economy and work together to keep it in continuous motion.
