Old Soles?

Now that Spring has sprung, are you doing your usual Spring cleaning? Perhaps you have several pairs of shoes and you’re looking to free up some space in your closet?  Well, we have some suggestions for you! April is Earth Month and even your shoes can go green!

DONATE YOURS!
“With 1 in every 4 adults in the world living in extreme poverty, basic necessities like shoes are simply unavailable.” Instead of throwing your old kicks in the trash, donate them to a charity that has distributed more than 17 million pairs of shoes around the world!

GO BAREFOOT (TODAY!)
Spread awareness about the impact a pair of shoes can have by ditching yours for day. Take the Barefoot Challenge today, April 10th, in support of One Day Without Shoes.

Now that you’re down a pair or two, here’s a way to be a little nicer to the planet on your next purchase of footwear!

ECO-FRIENDLY SHOES
Not only do they use environmentally friendly and recycled materials, but 100% the profits from a specific shoe goes to a new social cause every year. Currently, that charity is Common Ground Relief.

ONE FOR ONE
For every pair of shoes purchased, Tom’s will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need.
