Your used shoes can have a second life!

Did you know that the average person throws away 70 pounds of textiles in the trash per year? That adds up to 21 billion pounds of extra waste dumped in our landfills every year. Meanwhile, the EPA estimates only 15% is donated or recycled. 

 

 

Since 2006, Soles4Souls has diverted 51 million pounds of shoes and clothing from landfills and instead created meaningful economic opportunities around the globe.

 

Don’t waste a good opportunity!

Your gently-worn shoes help individuals start and sustain small businesses to provide basic necessities and lift themselves and their families out of poverty.

The sale of one pair of shoes can provide five meals for Marie-Ange and her family in Haiti.

20 pairs of shoes sold can provide a year’s worth of shelter for Ginette and her family in Haiti.

30 pairs of shoes can provide a year’s worth of schooling for Tracy’s daughter in Honduras.

Give Shoes. Give Love. Go Green.
