If you have footwear that is just collecting dust, our Got Sneakers program is a great way to free-up some closet space, help those that are in need of footwear, and raise funds for Keep Loudoun Beautiful...a true win-win-win. In addition to feeling good about making a difference, this program keeps footwear out of the landfill, which benefits everyone.
In addition to collecting footwear at our events, we have many participating locations around Loudoun (listed at bottom) and will hopefully have a map soon to make it easy for you to drop-off your unused footwear.
Here is some additional information about the program.
What footwear is acceptable? GotSneakers accepts all styles of footwear, including new, gently used, used, and unwearable shoes, sneakers, rubber soccer cleats, rubber baseball cleats, and canvas footwear.
Who are the beneficiaries? All footwear is counted and sorted at the GotSneakers headquarters in Miami, FL, where they are categorized based on size, style, and condition and subsequently packed for distribution around the world, primarily to micro-enterprises in impoverished countries such as Bolivia, Chile, El Salvador, Ghana, Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, and Ukraine.
What happens to unwearable footwear? Unwearable footwear is usually recycled into new products such as tracks, playgrounds, and other athletic surfaces. This is in line with KLB's philosophy of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle to keep valuable stuff out of landfills.
Keep a lookout for our Got Sneaker collection boxes near you and spread the word.
Participating Locations as of 11/27/2018. Thank you very much to these partners and if you want to host a collection site or have a suggestion, please email us.
