Recycle Your Old Shoes-Unless They Add Chocolate, This Can’t Get Any Better

Posted in Liberty, Life, Pursuit of Happiness, sustainability, useful information tagged , , , , , , , , at 11:30 am by Elaine Petrowski

Here’s a great way to clear out some closet space with a clear conscience, do a good deed and get a receipt for your income taxes in the process.

You all have them. Those several pairs of  shoes you never wear… but can’t bring yourself to throw out?

The fashion faux pas shoes. The  gee-when-did-my-feet-grow shoes? And those cool cross-trainers that gave you dime-sized blisters both times you wore them.

Some of the shoes has collected went to tsunami survivors and to those who lost everything to Hurricane Katrina. Others go to the homeless, or to shelters for battered women, or to hospitals. Way better then going to waste in the landfill.

And Soles4Souls will happily accept not just your shoes, but the gently-used shoes and boots your toddlers have outgrown, your teenager will no longer leave the house in, or that just plain hurt your  husband’s feet.

Quick, easy, painless sustainability and recycling. By my reckoning, unless you add chocolate to this deal, it just doesn’t get any better.

See an earlier, related post on sustainability.

And then do a good deed for your shoe-aholic friends by passing this post onto them.


  1. The difference is frequently discovered in the quality of the leather and how it feels to
    the contact. There is also the intelligent
    Siri (Apple’s new voice recognition service). Hope you have
    enjoyable with your new jailbroken iPhone.

  2. Now sit back and unwind whilst Redsnow .9.7b4
    requires treatment of the rest. Once you do that, your phone will flicker for a second and you will hear a sound.
    Clip your telephone to your belt, in a good vented pouch.

  3. They can be hidden by clicking on among the tabs which appear at each end.

    At first I simply recognized “Friend Requests” from people I recognized.

    With Windows 7, it began back up, as it’s likely to.

    Thanks for expressing your ideas on this blog. As well,
    a delusion regarding the banking institutions intentions whenever talking
    about property foreclosure is that the financial institution will
    not take my repayments. There is a fair bit of time the bank will require
    payments here and there. If you are very deep within the hole, they may commonly call that
    you pay that payment 100 %. However, that doesn’t mean that they will have
    any sort of installments at all. In case you and the traditional bank can have the ability
    to work a thing out, the foreclosure method may
    halt. However, in case you continue to pass up payments beneath new approach, the foreclosed process can pick up where it was
    left off.

  5. Hi there, You have done a fantastic job. I will definitely digg it and for my part suggest to
    my friends. I’m confident they will be benefited from this web site.
