Help Mother Earth

Here's a couple of ways you can recycle gear - aside from giving away items you don't need or want, or taking them to a gear swap (saw this in Newsday):

Nike wants your shoes: Its Reuse-A-Shoe program takes beat-up kicks (any brand) and recycles them into goop used in basketball courts, tracks, playgrounds.

Patagonia wants your fleece: The Common Threads Garment Recycling Program accepts worn-out (washed, please) Patagonia organic cotton tees and fleece and other makers’ Polartec fleece.
