Network Global Logistics Partners with Crocs to Support SolesUnited Recycling Program
Torrance, CA – May 19, 2008: Network Global Logistics (NGL), a premier provider of supply chain, logistics, and transportation services, announced that it has partnered with Crocs, Inc., the designer, manufacturer, and retailer of CrocsTM footwear, to support Crocs' innovative footwear recycling program.
Known as SolesUnitedSM, the recycling program is the first of its kind and is dedicated to providing new quality footwear to people in need worldwide. Consumers donate their worn out CrocsTM footwear at participating retailers, or send them to Crocs' collection centers to be sorted, cleaned, ground into new material, manufactured into new recycled shoes, and distributed to those in need.
Network Global Logistics' Rialto Distribution Center, located in Bloomington, California, and Columbus Distribution Center, located in Lockbourne, Ohio, support the program by serving as collection centers for donated shoes. Within NGL's facilities, donated shoes are received, sorted, palletized, and shipped to Crocs' manufacturing facilities to begin the recycling process.
"Our partnership with Crocs in support of the SolesUnitedSM program highlights our dedication to effective recycling programs and green initiatives, not only in our own North American network of distribution centers, but within our clients' supply chains, as well," stated Joe Ryan, Director of Eastern Operations for NGL, "We are excited to be a part of the SolesUnitedSM program in helping to improve the quality of life for millions of people worldwide."
