Did You Know?
Most people throw away their used sneakers every 125-200 days without ever thinking about recycling. Since sneakers are manufactured with materials that are not biodegradable, they remain in landfills or are incinerated, which leads to toxic chemicals in our air and soil.
The process of manufacturing sneakers produces large amounts of CO2 which contributes to the serious effects of climate change and global warming. Recycling and reusing sneakers keeps sneakers out of landfills, reduces the need for manufacturing new shoes and sneakers, and supports a growing circular economy.
The Hammonton Green Committee is collecting sneakers to recycle through Got Sneakers.
Help us get good sneakers to those in need, and to recycle those that can no longer be worn.
Bring your old sneaks to Green Day!
