soles united


Love 'em or hate 'em, a lot of people have crocs. I have to say, they are a pretty convenient and comfortable shoe, especially for kids.

When I first started this blog, one of my initial questions was to find out if crocs were "eco friendly." What I determined was that most shoes of any kind are not (except for the rare recycled material pair). So I let the question go unanswered.

The other day I was at a local sporting goods store and saw a sign about a program to recycle old crocs. As if that doesn't sound good enough, I learned that the program, Soles United, actually is able to use the material to create new shoes for people in need.

Check out this video and look at their website for more info and locations where you can drop of your crocs.

Thanks for info re crocs.

Checked the site and found out that my local Whole Foods participates in the program.
