Recycle Your Used Tennis Shoes!

Tired of gluing your flapping soles to your sneakers, recycle them with Nike's Reuse-A-Shoe Program. From their website:

Reuse-A-Shoe: Worn out. Play on.

Every year, millions of pairs of athletic shoes are thrown away, clogging landfills and wasting a lot of good material. So we’ve created a solution to allow you to recycle your old shoes! Reuse-A-Shoe, part of our Let Me Play campaign, is one of Nike’s longest-running environmental and community programs, where worn-out athletic shoes of any brand are collected, processed and recycled into material used in sports surfaces like basketball courts, tennis courts, athletic fields, running tracks and playgrounds for young people around the world. That’s right. You can turn your old kicks into new places to play your game. Since the birth of Reuse-A-Shoe, we’ve recycled more than 20 million pairs of athletic shoes and created more than 250 sport surfaces; giving thousands of young people access to new playgrounds and athletic facilities around the world. Find out how it works and donate your shoes »

Chronicling my adventures in proving that less is more. I'll learn to refashion/recycle clothes, prepare gourmet meals using as many natural/basic/raw ingredients as possible. I'll learn to spend less, live more, and reclaim those things that are truly valuable in my life.


Below are feeds from websites that I find to be interesting and from a similar vein.
