    Recycle Used Flip Flops & Shoes – Where Can I (Wednesday)

    Old Navy & Terracycle's flip flop recycling program - Recycle used flip flopsLast week I was on my way into the Phillies game… and RIGHT before they searched my bag, I blew out my flip flop… just like Jimmy Buffet once did.

    After mourning my beloved Havvies (and darting to the Clubhouse store to purchase a pair of Phillies Flippy Floppies), my next dilemma was where to recycle used flip flops.

    Good news… Terracycle has partnered with Old Navy for a Flip Flop Brigade recycling program. For every 25 pairs of used flip flops you send to recycle, you’ll receive coupons for Old Navy. It’s as easy as downloading a prepaid shipping label from Terracycle and dropping off at a UPS location.

    Can’t meet the minimum of 25 pairs to recycle used flip flops? There’s a guide to holding a successful used flip flop drive on Terracycle’s website. Or, you can recycle other types of shoes like boots, sneakers, pumps and more in the Paired Shoe Brigade program. (Good news for me – I just did some fall cleaning and have quite a few pairs for Terracycle!)

    Readers, will you recycle used flip flops? Have you found any other 2nd lives for your beloved summer footwear?
