When it comes to taking care of our cities, we want to make sure we take care of our waste, too: reducing it, recycling it and re-using it. Together, we can make a concerted effort to improve our planet and put a halt to our throw-away habits.
Retake launched its hugely successful “Re-use and Recycle” program to upcycle used gym shoes, something that kids of all ages can get involved in – and feel good knowing that they’ve made a small but precious contribution to improving the lives of others.
Used tennis shoes get cleaned and donated to those in need, or, the rubber gets repurposed by transforming our old shoes into playground landing pads or sports fields. All this happens and more thanks to the activism of kids and their parents all across the country.
