Thinking Green

According to the Council for Textile Recycling, Clothing accounts for 4% of all American landfill. I will devote the next three "Thinking Green" posts on ways to avoid contributing to this growing problem.

Nike is one company that has come up with a creative solution for keeping old sneakers out of the trash.
