We all know that we need to do our part to help the environment, but sometimes it can be hard to get started. Recycling and repurposing materials can help protect our planet and make a positive impact. So we’ve compiled a list of nine ways you can contribute to helping the environment.

1. Recycle Your Sneakers

Many companies are willing to collect shoes and sneakers for repurposing and some are willing to give you cash for them too.

Nike has a program where they collect your worn-out athletic shoes and repurpose them into new shoes.

You can find the list of other programs in the article 7 Places Where You Can Donate Sneakers For Cash

2. Recycle Wine Corks

Restaurants, bars, and other eating establishments that sell wine often hold onto their wine corks. Back in 2016/2017 we collaborated and swung by many restaurants each week to collect wine corks to recycle them for funds.

The program was run by a company that shut down not too long after we got started but it doesn’t mean the potential to recycle corks for cash should end there. You can always sell them on eBay or Etsy, create products out of corks to sell like floor mats, earrings, vases, etc, or start your own recycle corks for cash company.

3. Recycle Your Clothes

ForDays, H&M, The Bra Recyclers, and Patagonia are stores that collect your used clothing for recycling or repurposing. Some of these stores give you store credit or discounts when you bring in your clothes.

4. Recycle Your Furniture

Kaiyo buys and resells your used furniture in three easy steps.

Step 1 Submit the furniture that you want to sell.

Step 2 Pick a date for them to come to pick it up, they will clean and deliver the product to the buyer.

Step 3 You can wait for the item to get sold or cash out on your item immediately on the instant cash offer they provide.
