Reuse a Shoe

Continuing in their efforts to clean up the earth, students in the Recycling Club at Robert Moses Middle School partnered with the Town of Babylon and the Nike store at the Tanger Outlet in Deer Park to participate in Nike’s Reuse-A-Shoe Program. The initiative takes old sneakers, separates each part, and then recycles them and turns them into basketball courts, tennis courts and running tracks. For one week, the club collected hundreds of old sneakers and presented them to representatives from the Town of Babylon and Nike. The program was held in coordination with Global Youth Services Day.
