Native Shoes has partnered with Zappos for Good, the community outreach arm of Zappos.com, which will collect the well-loved Native Shoes and recycle them into playground matting. The initiative called 'The Remix Project' is one of Native Shoes' programmes that aim to have each and every pair of their shoes 100 per cent life cycle managed by 2023.
 
Native Shoes is a global footwear brand creating accessible, easy-to-wear silhouettes that are environment friendly. Zappos on the other hand is a customer service company that sells shoes, clothing and more.
 
Consumers can help build playgrounds by visiting Zappos for Good, requesting a free shipping label, and sending all styles of well-loved Native Shoes to be recycled, says a press release from Native Shoes. The project's goal is to receive 10,000 recycled shoes by December 31, 2018 and build its first playground in 2019.
 
"Our customers are always showing us how to keep it lite and have fun when they wear Native Shoes. It seemed like a perfect fit to turn them into something useful, on a playground where communities gather to have fun and play," said Kyle Housman, president, Native Shoes. "We're excited to be working with Zappos for Good on this project, what a great opportunity to team up and bring fun to communities."
 
"As an advocate for environmental sustainability, joining forces with Native Shoes is an amazing opportunity to help communities do more with less by encouraging an environmental best practice in the retail industry that simultaneously creates a fun space for kids and their imaginations to run wild," said Steven Bautista, head of Zappos for Good at Zappos. "With our overarching goal of delivering happiness, this project's sustainability efforts allow us to spread smiles on both a national and local level." (PC)
