come to your senses tired of your old Crocs? Free up the enormous amount of room in your closet by donating your shoes to the Soles United program. You donate your used footwear to a participating retailer (although they don't have any listed for Canada as of yet - boo!) or mail them directly to the program. SolesUnited then takes the shoes to be cleaned, sorted, ground and repurposed into new footwear. They've partnered with aid organizations around the world to distribute the recycled shoes. The only downside? The ensuing worldwide epidemic of frightening footwear. Are we really doing impoverished countries a favour by giving them one of the greatest fashion scourges known to the western world? Tossup.
