Friends, who knew?!?! You can recycle your own sneakers with Nike who then uses them to build playgrounds and courts. Just drop them off at a participating store or send them here:
Nike Recycling Center
26755 SW 95th Ave.
Wilsonville, OR 97070
To find out more about their awesome "Let Me Play" Campaign, check out their website.
Also, did you know you can recycle your Sonicare toothbrush's battery at Radio Shack? According to the company, these brushes only last 3 to 5 years depending on the model. When yours kicks the bucket, take it to Radio Shack for recycling.
If you don't have a sonicare toothbrush, I HIGHLY recommend them. Best toothbrush ever. You'll never go back.
