Did You Know?
Most people throw away their used sneakers every 125-200 days without ever thinking about recycling. Since sneakers are manufactured with materials that are not biodegradable, they remain in landfills or are incinerated, which leads to toxic chemicals in our air and soil.
The process of manufacturing sneakers produces large amounts of CO2 which contributes to the serious effects of climate change and global warming. Recycling and reusing sneakers keeps sneakers out of landfills, reduces the need for manufacturing new shoes and sneakers, and supports a growing circular economy.
The environmental benefits of recycling and reusing sneakers are significant.
Since they started out on their mission, GotSneakers has:
- Stopped 75 million pounds of CO2 from entering the atmosphere.
- Recycled and reused 2.5 million pairs of shoes (and counting!).
