Last semester, the TuftsRecyles! Team put a recycling bin for shoes in the Tisch Sports Center. The project was a partnership with Rerun Shoes, a full-service footwear recycling company, that aims to remove usable shoes from waste lots in North America while supporting sustainable microbusinesses in the African Tropics.
TuftsRecycles! recently updated their blog announcing that the are sending their first full box of shoes to secondhand shoe vendors in Mali, Guinea and Liberia. Check out the photo below and visit their blog for more details.
