Tennis Shoe Recycling

 A mountain of shoes

Our Conservation/Environmental Watch Committee regularly encourages members to recycle and collects items for this purpose.  A major project for the committee is working with a local Girl Scout troop collecting thousands of pairs of tennis shoes that are sent locally to a facility where they are recycled.  FCGC was awarded a National Garden Club Federation Award in 2009 for this project.

 

Note:  This Tennis Shoe Recycling Event for 2020 has been cancelled.   The Nike store that accepted the shoes for recycling is not able to do so this year.
