You can always give back, even during tough economic times. Mobilize your office in an act of do-goodness by rounding up not-so-loved shoes for a worthy cause.
A few fabulous programs can breathe new life into old kicks:
SolesUnited.com: Mail in old Crocs or donate them to a participating retailer, and this company grinds the clogs into new material for shoes, which it distributes to the needy. You can also buy a pair made from the recycled material, and Crocs will donate a pair through the program.
SimplySoles.com/Suited for Change: You can help women transition out of homeless shelters and into the working world by giving them a pair of your shoes (any size, closed toe, professional-looking). You get to bask in the spirit of recycling and 10% off your next order with the online boutique.
LetMePlay.com: Nike takes your old sneakers (any brand) and recycles them into material for sports surfaces in needy areas worldwide.
