Earth Day DIY Tip – recycle old foam into new insoles

slipper insoles from recycled foam

Earth Day is just around the corner so I thought I would share a DIY project I did recently. A few months ago I created some insoles from an old sheet of foam. I’m not positive about this, but I think the hospital gave us the foam when our last child was born three years ago. I saved the foam instead of throwing it in the garbage because I figure I could use if for something someday. Well now I have. I created a pair of insoles for my boots and another pair for my slippers. Why spend $10 to $20 on new insoles when you can make new ones by recycling old foam?

Birkenstock Boston Soft Footbed Review

Earlier this month, Birkenstock sent me a pair of their Boston Soft Footbed (Taupe Suede) to try out. Cool. My first Birkenstock. My wife has billions of Birkenstock sandals (what is it about women and their love of shoes?), but they never appealed to me. Until now. I think other dads will like them too. The Birkenstock Boston is great for the dad on the go. You can easily slide your feet in and out of them. I use them all the time for running errands and for taking the kids to and from the bus stop. I also like the closed-toe design, which helps keep your toes warm and dry. Just perfect for the rainy Pacific Northwest.
