Turn your old shoes into basketball courts
You can now recycle those worn out old athletic shoes so they can be given new life.
Now through June, all brands and sizes of athletic shoes will be accepted. They'll be turned into playgrounds, running tracks, football fields and basketball courts. Dress shoes, flip flops, cleats are not accepted. The program is sponsored by NikeTM.
