Explore, Enjoy and Protect


By Mary Schultz


How many pairs of flip-flops have you worn out in a Houston summer or two?

There is a handy way to recycle those flip-flops, and to earn back-to-school clothes coupons at the same time. The Houston Sierra Club is conducting a flip-flop collection drive from August 1, 2014 through September 30, 2014.

All appropriate items will be packed and sent to Terracycle®, whose joint project with Old Navy® offers Old Navy coupons in return for at least 8 lb. of flip-flops. See the web site

The Houston Sierra Club will donate any earned coupons to the YMCA or other back-to-school drives for low-income students.

Flip-flops to be donated can be brought to the Houston Sierra Club General Meeting on August 14 or Sept 11, 2014, or to any planned Houston Sierra Club Meet-Up or Outing. Look for the flip-flop collection box or meet-up leader.

Contact Mary Schultz for more information.
