My daughters school (Lincoln Elementary) is having their first ever Sneaker Recycle week. They have learned that Nike recycles sports sneakers of any brand. The materials from these shoes are used to make playgrounds, running tracks, courts, and fields.
To celebrate World Environment Day, we would like to do our part by collecting old or worn-out sneakers to help save our Earth’s landfills and build more sports and play areas. It takes about 2,500 sneakers to make a playground, so let’s get it started!
The shoe drive starts on World Environment Day, this Thursday, June 5th, and ends Wednesday, June 11th. Please bring your sneaker donations to practice this weekend and give to Caesar on Saturday or Tammy on Sunday!
Please no metal or cleats or dress shoes!
