Before your throw out that old pair of running or walking shoes, why not recycle them instead? Soles4Souls is a charity that distributes millions of shoes to people in need across the nation and worldwide.
Soles4Souls is partnering with Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation, The Georgia Recycling Coalition, 1-800-Got-Junk?, the Georgia Department of Community Affairs, and Whole Foods on the “Turn Up the Sole” with Georgia Statewide Recycling Campaign. Through this campaign, Soles4Souls hopes to encourage the donation of used shoes to people in need and also provide an eco-friendly way to recycle shoes.
When discarded, shoes break down in landfills and act as a potential health threat as the toxic glue that holds shoes together often leaks into water supplies and the atmosphere.
Soles4Souls not only offers an ecological way to recycle your shoes but also allows you to simultaneously benefit people in need.
Change the world one pair at a time and donate to those who greatly need footwear.
