SOLES4SOULS SHOE DRIVE 4THEPLANET!

No 4 imposed over woman holding shoesGive Shoes. Give Love.

Soles4Souls collects new shoes to distribute to people in need across the U.S. and around the world, helps people launch and sustain their own small business selling donated shoes, protects the environment by putting goods to use, instead of wasting away in a landfill, and aims to empower women, ensuring they have the opportunity and recognition they deserve.

WHY SHOES?

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, Soles4Souls and its amazing supporters have diverted 66 million pounds of shoes and clothing from  landfills.

Help us continue to protect the environment by donating your gently-used shoes and providing empowering opportunities for people in need around the world.
