We’re asking you to help us divert some of the 300million pairs of shoes that head to our landfills annually and give them new life. Bring Your Shoes To Work Day allows a variety of companies/entities to participate in recycling and environmentalism by simply encouraging their staff, students, guests to recycle their shoes.
This video is a hyper view of a day in the life of our Greenmarket Collections. We are now collecting in 29 weekly markets at 26 different locations. We collected over 3000 lbs of used clothing and textiles at this market.
We’d like to spotlight one of Wearable’s all-star collectors. Erika Waldron of Beacon, New York, reached out to us a few months ago looking to host a clothing drive in an effort to help the environment and raise money for her child’s elementary school.
Exciting times here in Wearable land. We are launching Walkable Collections, a division of Wearable that is dedicated solely to your soles. We have always accepted your shoes and sneakers at Wearable and you can continue to recycle them as you always have. However, by creating a division dedicated just to shoes and sneakers, we are capable of keeping more footwear out of the landfills and on people’s feet. Of course, this also enables us to dedicate more funds to our amazing partners who have helped make Wearable Collections such a success.
