Local Philadelphia Greensgrow Farms, in partnership with ShoeBox Recycling, introduced a shoe-recycling program with all proceeds feeding Greensgrow Farms programming. Subaru of America will also collaborate to kick-off this partnership with ShoeBox Recycling bins placed at the Subaru display during the 2012 WXPN XPoNential Music Festival Presented by Subaru July 20-22, 2012 at Wiggins Park on New Jersey’s Camden Waterfront. Festival attendees are encouraged to responsibly discard their gently used shoes. This natural alignment of sustainability and local farming seeds the foundation of a great relationship that will inspire all to change their mindset about the global need for shoe recycling and reuse.
