WALTHAM, MA (PRWEB) April 10, 2012
PlanetShoes.com is proud to announce a special Earth Month partnership with international shoe charity Soles4Souls, called “The Planet Initiative.” During the month of April, PlanetShoes.com is offering a 15% off coupon to individuals who donate their used shoes to Soles4Souls through the PlanetShoes.com mail-in opportunity or a local community drive.
“An average of 700 million pairs of shoes are thrown away by Americans each year,” said Phil Meynard, President of Planet, Inc. “We hope The Planet Initiative will encourage consumers to donate their old shoes instead, keeping them out of a landfill and putting shoes on the feed of needy people around the world.”
