It’s a time for warmer days, regrowth and some spring cleaning. Many of us are packing away our winter wardrobe and unpacking clothing for spring and summer. Maybe you’ve already started and are fi nding shoes that don’t fi t quite right anymore or just don’t suit your taste. Pause before you open the trash bin! According to Planet Aid, the midsoles of running shoes can take 1,000 years to break down. Shoes made from organic materials, such as leather or wool, when put in landfi lls and allowed to breakdown release harmful methane gas. This gas is a greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change. Instead of throwing your shoes away, bring them to the Louisville Zoo! The Membership Offi ce now has a large WaterStep drop off box located inside. WaterStep is a local organization that uses the shoes to help fund safe drinking water projects all over the world. Shoes dropped off in the WaterStep box are used in many different ways. Some are cleaned up and are able to be reused. Some parts are recycled as playground turf material.

Your house will be less cluttered, and you’ll be helping to protect the environment for people and wildlife. 18 • Louisville Zoo Trunkline • Spring 2017 NIGHT SAFARI BREAKFAST Sponsored by BACKYARD ACTION HERO GUIDEBOOK Presented by
