Turn your old socks into dog beds

Posted at 5:12 PM, Apr 30, 2021

LAFAYETTE, La. — Pack & Paddle is partnering with Smartwool to recycle socks into new products like dog beds.

You can drop off your worn-out socks (clean, please) at Smartwool Second Cut Project dropbox at Pack and Paddle and Smartwool will repurpose them into dog bed stuffing. Any socks are acceptable, and you can drop them off during regular store hours.

While you're in, Pack and Paddle will reward you with a coupon good to receive a free pair of Smartwool socks (same or lesser value) when you purchase two pairs of Smartwools.

Episcopal School of Acadiana joined in and collected socks from students and parents that were dropped off at the store Friday afternoon.

Sales associate Alexander Landry said the project is a great way for members of the community to be aware of and minimize the impact they have on the environment. Donating old socks will "give a second life to something that you've already had an experience with," Landry added.

Pack and Paddle is accepting clean, unwanted socks until May 8. The store is located at 601 E Pinhook Rd. in Lafayette.
