Bet you you didn’t think your athletic shoes were recyclable! Not only can you get the newest and best from Nike, but they recycle your old ones into sports and play surfaces. And while doing so they refresh their image as a responsible Brand in customer’s (and casual passersby’s) eyes. CLICK the thumbnail to zoom in. The tag line “Earth Has Sole” is catchy, and even the drop box hole is circumscribed with a Running Track. This is an old display that just surfaced in my files, but it is a good example of both corporate responsibility and self promotion.
