Turn your used, beat-up, worn-down, tired, old sneakers and athletic shoes into PLAYGROUNDS

Turn your used, beat-up, worn-down, tired, old sneakers and athletic shoes into PLAYGROUNDS, running tracks, and even ... new shoes!

I am sure all of us have those old, yucky shoes laying around in our closets - shoes that are way past their prime and not fit to donate to Goodwill. WELL....thanks to Nike these shoes now have a destination! Recycling your athletic shoes with Nike’s Reuse-A-Shoe is a simple way to start making a difference and caring for our environment.

It is so easy! Take your old athletic shoes (ANY BRAND) to your nearest drop-off
location (all Nike retail stores in the U.S., as well as National Recycling Coalition centers and other locations in the U.S., Europe and Australia.) When you are ready to buy new shoes, look for recycled and sustainable materials in the products you buy and helping Nike spread the word about shoe recycling.

Tips from Nike on shoe recycling:

·       We can only recycle athletic shoes (running shoes, sneakers, etc.)

·       We accept all brands of shoes

·       No shoes containing metal

·       No cleats or dress shoes

·       No wet or damp shoes

·       No sandals or flip-flops

No matter how you get involved, you’ll be helping the world reduce its footprint – one step at a time.
