Recycle Your Flip-Flops, Create Playgrounds!

Happy Earth Day! Here's a cool recycling program that TerraCycle Inc just announced which will lead to schools and communities getting new playgrounds. I don't wear flip-flops myself, so I'm posting this in hopes that those of you who do will donate your worn-out or outgrown pairs of flip-flops to this worthy cause.
Dear TerraCycle Brigade® Participants,

TerraCycle® is proud to announce that we have partnered with Old Navy to collect used flip-flops at Old Navy stores through the Flip Flop Brigade! The Brigade begins on Earth Day Friday, April 22nd and runs until the bins are full or Saturday, May 21st (whichever comes first) in all continental US Old Navy stores.

Just bring your used flip-flops to the Old Navy nearest you and look for the TerraCycle collection bin located near the store entrance. Once the collection bins are full, Old Navy will ship the flip-flops to TerraCycle to be recycled into playgrounds that Old Navy will give away to a few lucky schools and community organizations. If your Brigade location is interested in becoming a recipient of a TerraCycle Old Navy playground, please complete the TerraCycle Old Navy Playground Questionnaire.

Not only will you keep your used flip-flops out of the landfill, but you will also be helping to create a positive play environment for some deserving schools and community organizations. Now that’s flip-n-cool!

Participation in the Flip-Flop Brigade is simple and it’s completely FREE. There is no purchase necessary and you do not need to sign up on to participate.

For more information please contact TerraCycle customer service at 866-967-6766 or Or to find an Old Navy store near you go to

Happy collecting,
The TerraCycle Team

* Please note that unfortunately this program is not available in Old Navy stores located in Canada, Alaska, Hawaii or Puerto Rico.

I add: If you are in one of those places, just send your flip-flops in the mail to a friend in another region so that he or she may donate them on your behalf!</i>
