A SHIPLEY firm has partnered with two other organisations to enable customers to donate their unwanted running shoes for reuse and recycling.

SportsShoes.com, which is headquartered at Jubilee Way, is working with recycling initiative JogOn and logistics provider Evri to keep old trainers out of landfill.

The retailer has set up a special returns service with its two partners.

For a fixed fee of £2, the service allows customers to send up to six pairs of unwanted running shoes, up to a maximum of 15kg, to JogOn meaning the returns cost can be as little as 33p per pair of shoes.

The donated used shoes are distributed in support of charities, NGOs and micro-economies at 15 places around the world.

JogOn founder, Tony Piedade, said: “We are looking forward to working with the teams at SportsShoes.com and Evri as we head towards achieving our target of keeping one million pairs of used running shoes out of landfill each year.”

SportsShoes.com managing director, Brett Bannister, added: “JogOn is an excellent initiative, so we are very pleased to be able to start working with Tony and his team. We are very interested in and committed to this end-of-life scheme for running shoes.”
