Eventhough he's not going to single-handedly save the earth, its nice to see Steve doing his part.

"It's what I'd like to say is a step in the right direction," Nash told the East Valley Tribune.
Nike says it is the first performance basketball shoe made from manufacturing waste. The shoes will retail for $100 (U.S.).
"I had nothing to with the price point," said Nash, "but I was definitely supportive about reusing."
Nash debuted the shoe last night in Phoenix against Dallas.
