Reuse, Recycle, Create Jobs: Annual Shoe Collection

Home / / / Reuse, Recycle, Create Jobs: Annual Shoe Collection

Each year we run a shoe collection drive. The benefits of the shoe drive are three-fold:

  • Shoes are kept out of landfills, preventing hazardous chemical contamination
  • Shoes create microenterprise in developing countries, providing opportunities for impoverished families to earn a living
  • RI earns funds for every pair of shoes collected to fund our programs

It’s a win-win-win!

Over the last two years, we have kept over 18,000 pairs of shoes from landfills, and have raised over $8,000 to help us work towards our goal of building RI Primary School.
