The Sleeping Naked is Green

Recycle Your Running Shoes

We were surprised just how much can be done with recycled sneakers! Nike’s Reuse-A-Shoe program has collected over 24 MILLION

sneakers for use in their Nike Grind project that repurposes most of the materials to make all kinds of ball courts, playgrounds and tracks!

Also found a great non-profit called Sole4Souls that helps gather donated shoes and get them to people who need them all over the world – over 17 million have been given out so far!

Listen this Sleeping Naked is Green 5-minute segment for a lot more details on our visit our post for this week’s show.

Why We Should Care

This week we focused on our talk with actress, mom and business woman, Jessica Alba

Jessica talked about getting creative about sustainable living ideas, especially when it comes to children. Visit Jessica’s very earth-friendly business geared towards healthy, green parenting – The Honest Company.

Feature Interview

Rachel Kaplan, author of Urban Homesteading: Heirloom Skills for Sustainable Living. The book is definitely a must-have reference for anyone who is interested in finding simpler ways to live more sustainably – no matter where they live. An inspiring and thoughtful interview worth listening to.
