Nike Grind - Worn Out ... Play On!
Nike Grind is a component of Nike's Corporate Responsibility initiative, which strives to reduce the environmental footprint created from the production of athletic footwear. Worn-out athletic shoes of any brand are collected through Nike's Reuse-A-Shoe program, along with manufacturing scrap, and processed into three products collectively known as Nike Grind; including Nike Grind rubber, foam and upper fabric. To date, nearly 25 million pairs of athletic shoes have been recycled through this first-of-its-kind program.
Nike has partnered with market-leading sports surface providers such as Ace Surfaces which utilize these materials to create sustainable, high-quality, high-performance sports surfaces. We use this material for our Grand-Slam, Air and Eco, Pro, Impact and products. Not only are these products better for the environment and your body, but they are also more cost effective.
Ace Surfaces believes in Nike and their corporate mission of "Innovation for a Better World", and that this idea should be the rule and not just an example. Ace Surfaces recognizes that Nike has taken a significant position on the issue of the environment, and together, we understand the importance of protecting the planet as individuals and as a global community.
