At Sea Star Beachwear, our mission is to simplify life and amplify adventure and in the spirit of that mantra, we want to spread the word about easy ways to give back.
You know that amazing feeling when you clean out your closet? You’re organized, refreshed, and ready to take on anything! If you know this feeling, then I'm sure you know the overwhelm that sets in when you turn around to see a mountain of unwanted clothes and shoes. You start thinking, “What do I do with all of this stuff?!”
We think about this problem often and took the initiative to partner with Soles 4 Soles, a like-minded organization that gives lightly worn shoes a second chance. At Sea Star Beachwear, we see our shoes as timeless, quality products made to live in and live on. Our water-friendly espadrilles transition from season to season without the wear and tear of fast fashion footwear. Instead of disposing of last season’s leftover pairs, we want to share our well-made, water-friendly espadrilles with those in need.
Soles 4 Souls is an amazing organization that turns unwanted shoes and clothing into opportunity. Through upcycling apparel, they provide relief, create jobs and empower people to break the cycle of poverty. Since 2006, they’ve distributed more than 53 million pairs of shoes in 127 countries and all 50 US states. They’ve also kept more than 53 million pounds of textiles from going to landfills.
When you donate a pair of shoes, it’s more than just cleaning out your closet- you’re helping the planet and changing someone’s life! Look at the impact we made by simply donating pairs of shoes laying around our office:
Now it’s your turn!
Soles 4 Souls makes it easy as 1-2-3 to donate gently-used shoes.
