If you are anything like me, the idea of turning your old running shoes into new running shoes is pretty amazing.
But what if those old running shoes could help someone in need? Someone who could put several hundred more miles on them?
That is exactly what KindRunner is about.
But wait...There's More!
KindRunner, launching June 1st, is the only online retailer that will have expert shoe fitters to help you pick out your new shoes! I know what you're thinking, you have a local shop you like to visit for their expertise. Well what about when the kids are nagging, your race is in a week, and you just plain have no time? How easy would it be to just get online and pick out your new pair of shoes? With free shipping BOTH WAYS, how can you go wrong?
You'll receive "Kindness Cash Rewards" for every pair of shoes you send to KindRunner and in turn they will send your shoes to either
Can it get any better?
Well it can. Did you know the average running shoe sits 90-100 years in a landfill before it decomposes? I believe runners, as a whole, try to reduce our impact on the carbon footprint. It's devastating to know the tool that we need the most, our shoes, can contaminate our environment like that. I know I can't wait to send in my old shoes so that they don't sit in a landfill. Clearly, I have a few pairs looking for new homes.
You've still got a couple more weeks before KindRunner launches, but they are already hosting an awesome contest! They are giving away a YEAR'S WORTH of running shoes to you and your favorite running partner! That's 3 pairs of shoes each! It's easy to enter, just sign up for the email list on the website, and make sure your running partner signs up also. Also, make sure and "Like" them on Facebook! Once they get 500 "Likes", they'll be giving away a pair of shoes!
"Your old shoes may not last another long run, but they would go the distance in changing someone else's life for the better"
