There are just a few days left to participate in the James Perse t-shirt recycling program "What Comes Around Goes Around." The promotion works like this: Donate your old Perse tees, get store credit, give recycled super lux basics to homeless families.

For each of your donated James Perse t-shirts, you will receive a $10 store credit to be used on the same store visit (limit five tees / $50 in credit). Your donated shirts will be reconditioned and redyed at the Perse facilities in Los Angeles, and re-donated to homeless men, women and children helped by the Beyond Shelter nonprofit -- an organization with "a holistic approach to helping get families off the streets" with education and job training, notes the Beverly Hills Patch.

Donations will be accepted at participating James Perse locations until Jan. 1, 2011. BH Patch also reports that NikeTown is accepting sport shoes donations for their ReUse-A-Shoe program that grinds up sole rubber to use on playground surfaces.
