    West Stride is dedicated to securing longevity for our Earth. Through running with West Stride, we're taking care of our physical health, which improves our mental health, which helps our emotional health. This circularity is great for people, but what does it do for Earth?

    Did you know 1 kg (or 2.20462 pounds) of carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere for every 5 standard plastic bags used? With every new shoe purchase from West Stride, you receive a reusable bag. These large bags are durable, water resistant, and big enough to fit 3 full sized shoe boxes comfortably. The possibilities are endless for what you can use these bags for. Every time you use a reusable bag, you are reducing your carbon footprint.

    Better Bins is devoted to bettering the Earth's environment through diverting the tremendous amount of running shoes, apparel, and nutrition that end up in landfills each year. That diversion is equipping stores like West Stride with the opportunity to provide their consumers a place to recycle running gear that can no longer be used. We take back, we recycle, Better Bins transforms, we keep out of landfills, we help Earth recover. We are closing the loop and supporting full circularity in the run speciality world.

    Better Bins accepts: athletic shoes, hiking boots, insoles, sock liners, arch supports, cotton, polyester, cotton/poly blends, any single serving sports nutrition (gels, chews, waffles, drinks) wrappers from any brand.

    Better Bins does not accept: non-sports nutrition (chips, cookies, jugs, tablet tubes) wrappers, dirty socks, dirty clothes, socks with grips, zippers, buttons, elastic, sandals, dress shoes, kids shoes, heels, track/cross country spikes, cleats, winter/ski boots.

    Girls on the Run is a national nonprofit organization that supports 3rd through 8th grade girls. This organization helps these girls gain confidence through developing and encouraging their emotional and physical health. These girls are also making sense of the world through blending physical activity with life skill enrichment to enable participants to adapt to whatever comes their way. When West Stride receives shoes that are in good condition, we give them to Girls on the Run, so any girl can run in great gear.

    Eco Sneakers states that there are about 400 million children that are living in extreme poverty today, and a large number of them have never owned a pair of shoes. Walking barefoot makes you susceptible to unwanted discomforts, which is exacerbated by location, age, and health status. Eco Sneakers is a business that takes shoes and either recycles them to create materials for new shoes, or reuses them so that somebody in need can use these gently used shoes.
