I’m a “flip-flop girl”… I LOOOOVE my flip-flops! And most of my friends know about my obsession too. If it’s above 50 degrees… FLIP-FLOP TIME!!!
It’s needless to say, however, that the lifespan of a flip-flop can be somewhat limited. They wear out, they break and, well, sometimes they just start looking pathetic.
Want to help those tired, poor flip-flops live on? (Clearly, I also enjoy “saying” flip-flop!…) but sincerely… there is a fabulous use for them after they outlive their original purpose.
From now until May 21, Terracycle has teamed up with Old Navy stores to collect those flip-flops. Deposit them in the collection bins at any Old Navy location in the U.S. and Terracycle will be turning them into playground materials.
The playgrounds will be given to a few schools and organizations that participate in the Terracycle Brigades too. My children’s school participates in the Drink Pouch Brigade so hey, who knows… my old flip-flops may just end up being a part of my kids’ playground!
We’re all preparing for summer (anxiously!) and pulling out everything that has been put away for far too long. If your seasonal wardrobe includes some flip-flops that have seen better days, make your way to an Old Navy store before they make their way to the trash…
… beloved flip-flops can live on!
