Kunkletown, PA (PRWEB) December 18, 2013
With the holiday shopping season in full swing, Pennsylvania’s first Benefit Corporation, Close the Loop, is celebrating and raising awareness for Safe Toys and Gifts Month by spreading awareness for their rubber mulch product, ideal for children’s playgrounds.
December is National Safe Toys and Gifts Month and in honor of the awareness holiday, Close the Loop is encouraging neighbors, colleagues, friends, and family to invest in safe toys and gifts for people, especially children.
“It’s important the gifts we give are not only functional, but safe,” says Close the Loop founder and CEO, Rita Lacey. “That’s why we recommend investing in rubber mulch for playgrounds. This could be a life-saving gift to give any family with children.”
Rubber mulch is a type of mulch used in gardens and sustainable landscaping. Made of non-toxic, shock-absorbing recycled tires, playground rubber mulch is not only more economical than wood mulch, but it can save hundreds of thousands of playground-related injuries. According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission, rubber playground cover has been proven to have superior shock absorbing capability. Additionally, rubber mulch doesn’t float and it drains well after rainfall, which in turn, reduces mud, attracts less insets and animals.
To date, Close the Loop has shipped over 7 million pounds of rubber mulch and continues to build the market for glass mulch and play sand made from post-consumer glass bottles.
