I can't think of a better use for all the old shoes that are just lying in your closet
Franklin Lakes, NJ (PRWEB) March 29, 2014
Many people ask, “what happens to all the shoes?” The shoes are sold in major metro areas to vendors who in turn create jobs and help improve the quality of life in cities. The vast majority of Africans cannot afford new shoes. The proceeds from the sale of the shoes provides training and tools to the poorest rural farmers.
In addition to funding several life-changing efforts, collecting used shoes and selling them to locals in Ghana provides additional environmental benefits. So many shoes sit in dark closets, forgotten and never worn, and then end up in landfills.
Reusing these shoes further promotes the global efforts to reuse and recycle.MORE Systems are micro-enterprise models designed to increase small farm productivity while creating a positive regional impact.
