In an effort to reduce waste, Nike has announced it will resell returned sneakers for a discount.
Nike officials said Monday it will accept shoes that are gently worn or have a manufacturing flaw (within a 60-day window from when they were purchased), then clean and sanitize them.

The refurbished shoes will then be displayed in a special section of some stores for a reduced price.
The company said shoes that can’t be given a second life will be converted into recycled material.
What do you think about this idea? Should other companies try something similar?
