Don’t just throw away those old sneakers! Instead of ending up in a landfill, they can be made into sports surfaces like basketball courts, tennis courts, athletic fields, running tracks and playgrounds.
Sneakers of any brand can be recycled at many Nike stores. You can drop off any brand of rubber-soled shoes at
Niketown, 6 East 57th Street (212.891.6453) or see http://www.letmeplay.com/reuseashoe.
