In an ongoing effort to offer "unique" ways to meet people (romantic or otherwise) in the Lehigh Valley, I bring you: HOW TO MEET ATHLETES WHO CARE ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT

Need a reason to get rid of those old, worn-out athletic shoes collecting dust at the bottom of your closet? Breathe new life into your sneaks by recycling them into something useful. Maybe you'll meet other like-minded peeps doing the same thing, or talk to someone who you inspired to recycle their shoes because they saw you doing it.

Until Monday, August 23, The City of Allentown’s Department of Parks and Recreation is hosting an athletic shoe recycling drive as part of Nike’s ReUse-A-Shoe community awareness program. Drop your shoes into collection bins located at the Park and Recreation office at 3000 Parkway Boulevard, the Recycling Drop Off Center at 1400 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, and/or at the Cedar Creek Parkway basketball courts during the youth basketball games on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6-8 PM.

Nike accepts all brands of shoes, and can only recycle athletic shoes (running shoes, sneakers, etc.) Nike will not accept shoes containing metal, cleats, dress shoes, wet/damp shoes, sandals or flip-flops.
