For this week’s TerraCycle Tuesday, we’re introducing a brand-spanking new brigade: the Paired Shoe Brigade!
Personally, I’m very excited about the launch of this new brigade because it has come right at the time of year when my family sorts through our ever-growing pile of shoes and sees what we can either donate or throw out. I’m glad that we now have the TerraCycle option as well!
Answer: pairs of women’s, men’s, and children’s shoes, which may include athletic sneakers, cleats, flats, high heels, dress shoes, boots, and fashion or casual sneakers.
Answer: ski boots, roller skates, roller blades, ice skates, completely broken or ruined footwear, single shoes, rubber flip flops, or slippersYou must send in PAIRS of shoes. TerraCycle is unable to accept single shoes. Also, we will not accept any shoe that has even a single hole that you can put a pen through.
Our shoes are upcycled into products that can themselves be recycled into more useful items!
