SUSTAINABILITY IS A TOP PRIORITY AT SCHWALBE
We act responsibly when dealing with customers, co-workers, society, and the environment. Our products drive change towards sustainable mobility solutions, and thus, reduce environmental impacts due to traffic.
Each Schwalbe tube is 100% recyclable.
In Germany, Great Britain, Belgium and the Netherlands, Schwalbe supports the return process of old bicycle tubes with a collection procedure. Bicycle dealers can participate easily and free of charge.
We produce high-quality, durable products with long service lives. Our approach is a sustainable product design from cradle to cradle. We have not yet reached our goal, but we are on track.
Schwalbe is the first tire manufacturer to offer products with fair trade rubber. Schwalbe pays a Fair Rubber premium on every kilo of rubber. This is used exclusively to improve the living conditions of small farmers and their families.
Fair Rubber is used for
Tread rubber with polymers exclusively sourced from renewable and recycled raw materials.
For the first time, a technology specifically designed by Schwalbe allows bicycle tires to be manufactured with tread rubber of polymers sourced exclusively from renewable and recycled raw materials in outstanding standard quality (grip/durability). This saves large amounts of energy and resources during tire production.
GreenGuard is a 3 mm thick, green puncture protection belt made of natural rubber. Highly elastic and a third is made from recycled material.

TIPS FOR USE
We advise our customers not to change tires prematurely. In addition, we recommend to check tires regularly for correct inflation, in order to increase their time of use.
