Recycle Your Old Skate Shoes!

Global warming, melting ice snowcaps, smog, destruction of the rainforest: What can you do to help save the world when all you have are some old skate shoes lying around the house? Active invites you to recycle your shoes on Earth Day, this coming Sunday, April 22! Imagine if your old shoes could be recycled into a soccer field where kids could play or even a new park where you can have your Cinco de Mayo barbeque. Well, imagine no more, that day has come!

Active, one of Southern California’s largest skate and snow retailers, wants to help you save the world. They are encouraging everyone to recycle their old shoes at any Active location on Earth Day, this coming Sunday, April 22. If the thought of green soccer fields or refurbished parks weren’t reason enough to recycle, Active will reward anyone who comes in with an old pair of shoes with $10 off any new pair. If you need another great reason to recycle those old shoes, do it to help save the only home we have: Earth.

Active currently has over 19 store locations throughout Southern California to make it even easier for you to drop off your old shoes. For drop-off locations, visit the Active site.
