Recycle Your Sneakers at the GOTR 5K

April 24, 2012

Bring your sneakers to the Girls on the Run of Atlanta 5K this Saturday. GreenSneakers will be there to collect shoes and give them a new life – whether sending them on to folks in need in a third world country or turning them into playground mulch. AND GreenSneakers pays Girls on the Run 50 cents a pound. A pair of sneakers can weigh up to 2 pounds so¬† GOTR receives approximately $1 per pair of shoes. It’s a win-win-win for everyone.

You can bring your sneakers (adults and children’s shoes) to the 5K this weekend and drop them off at the Expo OR you can drop them off ahead of time at West Stride Running Store.

So clean out your closet and bring your sneakers this Saturday.

    Are there any other places for sneaker drop off? How about shipping them to you?

      Hi Sharon,

      Where are you located? Our office is in Norcross – you can drop them off here or you could drop them off at a local GOTR site and they can bring them to the race this Saturday (many schools are collecting them as well) or you can drop them off at either Phidippides location. Lots of options. If you want to ship them, the address is Girls on the Run of Atlanta, 5696 Peachtree Parkway, Suite A, Norcross, GA 30092. Let me know what works best for you. And THANKS – we appreciate it!
