Shoes 4 Blues
This venture started in 2018. Noor was a freshman in high school, 13 years old, and Moe was a seventh grade, 11 years old. We came to a realization that people dispose of a colossal amount of items in good condition, yet they still end up in landfills, which take years to decompose while we could make better use of it. Our first fundraising was for MSA/Project Alive. The main purpose was to repurpose goods for global distribution and raise money by selling shoes collected for charity. By recycling, we are multitasking by minimizing waste and maximizing the use of indecomposable material. We’ve recycled over 20,000 pairs of shoes.
