Step 6: Disposal/Recycling

The last step after the football has been consumed for maximum duration is the disposal/recycling of footballs.  This could be done in a variety of ways: donating to those less fortunate, recycling at a leather factory, using around the home as a lawn decoration or a new dog toy, or even a Halloween mask! Leather can be recycled by cleaning it. One process is shredding it and gluing it back together. Another is bonding it with a natural rubber. We can use this recycled leather for wallets, shoes, luggage, belts, and handles on bats and golf clubs. The possibilities are endless to go green with recycling of footballs, so the trash isn’t always the best choice.
