First, take your worn out athletic shoe (of any brand) and go to the nearest Reuse-A-Shoe drop-off location. Nike has locations at some Nike Stores, other retail stores, athletic clubs, schools and colleges. In the U.S., they also partner with members of the National Recycling Coalition, and have Reuse-A-Shoe programs and locations around the world, in Canada, the U.K., Netherlands, Germany, Australia, and Japan. Next, the shoes are shipped to one of their processing facilities – one in Oregon, USA and the other in Belgium – to be ground up into a material called Nike Grind. Then, working with partner organizations, the Nike Grind is used to make different parts of sport surfaces in communities around the world. Some Nike Grind is used to cushion basketball courts, while other Nike Grind is used in synthetic soccer fields! Find where to donate your old athletic shoes You can also send your old shoes to...
