Save Our Soles

 - Breathing Life Into Old Shoes -

 Ever wondered where your old shoes go?

 

 

Unfortunately most go into landfill

 

 

SportsPower is a proud partner in the Australian Sporting Goods Association initiative, Save Our Soles.

Save Our Soles re-purposes old shoes into all types of different flooring including for gyms and playgrounds, instead of it going into landfill.

Do your bit and join the Salve Our Soles mission by recycling your old shoes, it's easy .. just drop your old shoes into the Recycling Bin at any participating SportsPower store (check out the list below).

 

 

The shoes are collected and sent to a recycling plant for sorting and processing, all the re-usable bits are removed, including the leather and rubber and da da! they are turned into useable stuff.

And now we are starting to see just what this amazing program is all about, check out this article from the Wangaratta Chronicle:

Thanks to the Wangaratta Chronicle and Leah Anderson-Byrne for allowing us to reproduce their article.

 

So next time you are in your local SportsPower store keep an eye out for the Save Our Soles bin and help make a difference!
