The Green Team is partnering with Got Sneakers for this event. Through Got Sneakers each pair of athletic shoes will be evaluated to see if they can be resold or if they are at the end of their life and need to be recycled. The Green Team will receive between $0.25 (completely trashed sneakers) to $7.00 (like new brand name sneakers) for each pair of sneakers delivered to Got Sneakers.
