49K Shoes For SuperBowl XLIV

With direct partnerships from Arizona Textile Recyclers, FlexGround Inc., and ESPN, Keep Scottsdale Beautiful proudly collected nearly 30,000 shoes.  Diverting these shoes from landfills they were sorted, and recycled.  Suitable shoes were sent to third world communities while the remaining shoes were recycled a little closer to home going to Arizona textile Recycling Services.

And thanks to an AMAZING partnership with Flexground L.L.C., other shoes were processed, recycled, and turned into a basketball court for Scottsdale’s only homeless shelter.
