Lately I've been trying to increase my personal sustainability. I'm slowly switching over to 'gentle' cleaning products and reducing my waste as much as possible. I am pretty proud of how well I've been doing, particularly for someone who loves cleaning with bleach and throws away everything and just buys new! I came across an article about how Nike will take your old sneakers (any brand) and recycle them, turning them into astro-turf etc. Rather than your sneakers sitting in a landfill because they have a big hole in the sole you can send them to Nike or drop them off at a store and they will be recycled. Kudos to Nike.
