Recycling Triathlon Gear

Posted Apr 21 2010 8:02am
Great article in the Spring 2010 issue of Triathlon Life, the magazine of USA Triathlon on some options in lieu of throwing away used gear.

One of the companies mentioned is BolderPath , which is a company that will take back old triathlon gear of all types and then manufactures bags, briefcases, wallets, drybags and other products out of them. Very cool.

Run the Planet has a webpage listing Shoes Recycling Programs. For those who do believe in the reincarnation of running shoes, they compiled a list of recycling programs around the world. They have a variety of programs with website and contact info for programs all over the world, including Nike’s Reuse A Shoe, Up & Running in the UK, Recycled Runners in NZ, and others. Check out their webpage at: .

FitPlanet consults with race organizers to minimize their impact before, during, and after events and offers a list of races who have signed a FitPlanet Pledge of Sustainability that provides event organizers with formal and public recognition for taking steps to become more environmentally responsible. Events must pledge to adopt a minimum of 10 eco-Practices to qualify. Check them out at .
