Changing the World, One Pair at a Time

So maybe you weren’t able to get out and do something nice for the planet on Earth Day.  Or maybe you did your share of Earthkeeping, and ruined your shoes or boots in the process.

Either way, this program is for you: starting today, bring a pair of gently-worn shoes into one of Timberland’s US retail locations and receive 10% off a new pair in return.  All brands of men’s, women’s and children’s footwear will be accepted for donation, and all footwear goes to long-time Timberland partner Soles4Souls to help provide free footwear to those in need, both in the US and around the world.

Since its inception following the Asian tsunami,
Soles4Souls has distributed over 4 million pairs to people in 125 countries.

More than 300 million pairs of shoes are discarded by Americans each year. Donating your old footwear means less shoes in the landfill and more on the feet of those who need them (as an added bonus, there’s also more room in your closet).  What could be better?
