Are your old running shoes taking up too much space in your closet, but you don’t want to just throw them in the garbage?
Give your kicks a ‘second life’ by dropping them off at Fleet Feet Pittsburgh. We collect and donate the shoes to the MORE Foundation to help them fight poverty, hunger, and global warming.
Many people ask, “what happens to all the shoes?” The shoes are sold in major metro areas to vendors who in turn create jobs and help improve the quality of life in cities. The proceeds from the sale of the shoes provides training and tools to the poorest rural farmers. So many shoes sit in dark closets, forgotten and never worn, and then end up in landfills. Reusing these shoes further promotes the global efforts to reuse and recycle.
