Brooks Sports has debuted a new running shoe made of recycled and biodegradable materials

Ever think you could jog your way to a smaller carbon footprint? The new "Green Silence" sneaker by Brooks Sports allows you to do just that. For starters, the racing flat uses less than half as many parts as comparable shoes. Of the remaining components, more than 75 percent stem from post-consumer recycled sources, such as recycled compact discs for the heel counter, recycled water bottles for the lining and webbing, and recycled rubber for the outsole. Green Silence also boasts Brooks's biodegradable BioMoGo midsole, which the company says will break down 50 times faster than conventional midsoles in an active landfill.
