Reuse A Shoe
I just heard about this program by Nike that recycles athletic shoes in any condition, any brand and turns them into sports surfaces! They collect shoes from partnering retail stores, National Recycling Coalition and other shoe collections. The shoes get ground up and used for running tracks, tennis cort's and play grounds. They use a system called the Nike grind to separate the rubber, foam and fabric from shoes. The recycled material gets used again to make the surfaces and more shoes!
