A Running Shoe With a Greener Footprint

“A new shoe promises to help runners leave a greener footprint. As the Green Inc. blog reports today, running shoe maker Brooks now offers a marathon shoe made up of various recycled materials. The Green Silence marathon racing shoe, made by the running gear company Brooks and scheduled for release in February 2010, sports heel cups reinforced with recycled CDs; shoelaces, mesh, lining and stitching made from discarded water bottles; outsoles made from recycled rubber; and a collar stuffed with foam from old sofas. To learn more about the Green Silence shoe, check out the full post at Green Inc., “Recycled CDs and Sofa Foam for Your Feet.”
