Don’t use new trees—use IntegriTies! IntegriCo Composites (Sarepta, LA) strives to protect the planet by offering a more environmental alternative to wooden railroad ties, called IntegriTies. These composite rail ties are made from landfill-bound recyclable plastics, saving 25,000 trees in 2018, according to the company.
“We’re proud to remain at the forefront of responsible manufacturing,” said Scott Mack, IntegriCo CEO. “Through building long-lasting and versatile IntegriTies, we offer railroads an option to the traditional wooden tie.”
