In 2020, Sir David Attenborough created a Netflix film called A Life On Our Planet which highlighted the negative impact that humans have had on planet Earth’s environment. Now more than ever, it’s crucial for all of us to make positive lifestyle changes.
At Playtop, we believe it is important to reuse and recycle items that no longer serve their original purpose. Since 1977, we have repurposed truck and bus tyres into colourful safety surfacing for recreational sites.
