We’ve noticed lots of folks talking about using their “social distancing” time to finally tackle some things they’ve been meaning to do forever… like cleaning out their closets and setting aside things to donate. If that’s you, we’re guessing you’ll stumble across some shoes and clothing you forgot you had—and will never wear again. And if you do, we’ll take ‘em.
Here's why: the average person in North America throws away 70 pounds of textiles every year. That’s 21 billion pounds of extra waste dumped in our landfills every year! And the EPA estimates only 15% is donated or recycled.
Since 2006, our amazing supporters have diverted 59 million pounds of shoes and clothing from landfills.
At Soles4Souls, we’re protecting the environment by putting used goods to good use and turning shoes and clothing into opportunity.
