As a runner, I have gone through a whole bunch of running shoes. And I’ve often wondered about how to recycle them. I know that there are some places that, for lack of a better word, upcycle them. But I’ve always been a little wary of doing this, if only because I really wear these shoes out. I have guilt/concerns about the idea that I would be “upcycling” something that was not in great shape. (I also have guilt/concerns about how much garbage I produce, but that is a conversation for another time.) This brings me to what spurred this post. Nike recycles shoes. This I knew because I had seen this list. BUT. There are drop off locations!!!! How have I not known about this??!!! Is it too 2009 to *Facepalm* myself?
