Responsibility to Our Planet

You could just put your shoes in the trash and they will end up in a landfill site somewhere
near where you live. Here at the landfill nobody will get the chance to enjoy your shoes not
even the birds. In Palm Beach County, Florida the landfill receives enough trash to fill a
football field piled twelve feet high each and every day. Shoes and textile waste make up
5% of this total quantity.

As residents of our planet we need to be responsible and leave our world a better place for
generations to come. Your shoes can end up at a thrift store where they will be cleaned and
displayed for people to purchase them and give them a new life. One man’s trash is another
man’s treasure.

The choice is yours.
