Cherry Hill native Gary Gagnon seeks funds for his line of recyclable sneakers from ABC’s “Shark Tank” on Friday (8 p.m., 6ABC).
The former Moorestown High vice principal moved to North Carolina 10 years ago and has invented what he calls the only “Landfill-Free Sneakers.” Gagnon’s REMYXX sneakers are 100 percent recyclable.
They are as yet unavailable to the public as he lacked funds to launch the company. He is also soliciting donations on the sneakers' website.
Gagnon couldn’t reveal how he fared with “Shark Tank” financiers Barbara Corcoran, Mark Cuban, Daymond John, Robert Herjavec and Kevin O’Leary, but is certainly happy for the exposure.
