When shoes get worn out they get thrown out. They are thrown out in many different ways. To some people they disappear because they got stolen, to others they donate them and others just throw them away. Though they are thrown away and gone, are you aware on what happens to your shoes once their disposed of? From the survey we have taken, only 25% of students know what happens to their shoes once they are thrown out.
When shoes are thrown out they end up in a landfill and thousands of shoes end up there each year. Some old shoes get incinerated which releases many chemicals into the environment. (further details on environment impacts page)
