The Pamela Positive: ReUSE Your Shoe!

Share This Post

Nike has a great program.  They don\’t just sell shoes, they reuse your shoes.

In 1993 Nike started ReUse-A-Shoe. More than 25,056,779 pairs of shoes have now been used to build playgrounds and save our earth from unnecessary landfill.  Old shoes are combined with pre-consumer materials into \”Nike Grind.\”   This new compound is then used for tracks, basketball courts, playgrounds.
