How it works

The Zero Waste Box program allows you to recycle almost any type of waste. Simply follows the steps below to recycle your waste with us and make a positive impact on our planet.

What happens to the waste?

The collected fabrics are reused, upcycled or recycled as appropriate.

Accepted waste

Please send us any type of shoes including sandals, wedges, peep-toe, sneakers, flats, loafers, oxfords, clogs, boots, heels and five toe shoes.

Please do NOT...

Do not include "other" footwear like in-line skates or ski boots, and other clothing items related to feet, such as shoelaces and socks. We will also not accept household hazardous waste such as lithium ion batteries, pressurized canisters, pesticides, paint or medical sharps.

Recycling guidelines
