92906904-mel2.jpgMel Gibson has a new crusade – green rubber! According to sources, Gibson is a backer in Green Rubber Global, a Malaysia-based company that plans to invest $30 million in a tire recycling plant that will be based in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  Evidently the new tire plant will use waste-free environmentally friendly technology to produce a rubber compound that can be used to make all kinds of products – including more tires. It will also explore new ways to work with recyclers and prevent tires from going to more landfills and incinerators.

While the mission of the company seems quite genuine, Gibson’s passion behind the rubber business seems a bit disconnected. Evidently after shooting a film in New Mexico, he grew quite fond of the southwest destination. He was quoted as saying: “Hey, I’m just glad to be here and to be part of this and to watch it all happen,” said Gibson.  “I’m proud to be here in New Mexico.  I mean, we had a great experience with the film when we shot here.  This is such a great place to work.”

Well, whether this is a viable environmental issue that Gibson believes in or just an excuse to get his New Mexico fix, it looks like green rubber could be big business and help to solve a serious environmental issue.
