    Rubber, read article that says 1 billion tires are scrapped worldwide annually and that each tire loses 6 lbs on average. Here’s some recycling info https://www.thespruce.com/tire-recyc...rubber-1708979 . Also, where do condoms go to die? A lot of rubber, I imagine a big carbon footprint.

    Hard to find a real good answer to my question. Just where does all that rubber go?


    All that belongs to human understanding, in this deep ignorance and obscurity, is to be skeptical, or at least cautious; and not to admit of any hypothesis, whatsoever; much less, of any which is supported by no appearance of probability...Hume

    Think I heard that those are micro plastics and that they may get washed into the oceans .

    Apparently there are schemes to prevent that by capturing the rubber before it falls onto the road surface.
