Our stance on having a positive effect on the environment

For more than 60 years, Bandag has been helping customers save green by going green.

Since 1957 the Bandag retread process has kept an estimated 300 million tires out of the waste stream and saved some 4 billion gallons of oil, all while helping fleet customers lower their operating costs.1 At Bandag, we’re passionate about the environment.

As a member of the Bridgestone family, Bandag’s commitment to the environment is stronger than ever. In support of Bridgestone’s mission “to help ensure a healthy environment for current and future generations,” Bandag is redoubling its efforts to promote sustainable practices, from the installation of alternative energy solutions at our franchised dealers, to producing some of the lowest rolling resistance retreads on the market. We don’t view being green as a gimmick or a fad. Being green is a part of who we are.

To learn more about the environmental impact your fleet can make by switching to Bandag retreads, please see our Cost Savings Calculator.


More than 800 tires per hour are retreaded with Bandag. In a year, this helps keep roughly seven million tires out of the waste stream.

Bandag retreads require just 30% of the energy to produce as a new tire.2

Making a Bandag retread takes only seven gallons of oil, compared to 22 gallons required to manufacture a new tire.2

Several Bandag franchisees are taking advantage of alternative energy such as solar power.

Bandag FuelTech products offer some of the lowest rolling resistance in the industry, which contributes to fuel efficiency gains, ensuring that the environmental benefits of our retreads extend well beyond the production line.
