Clear out your old shoes in a sustainable way

Have unwanted shoes but are not sure how to dispose of them sustainably? Save them from the landfill with our shoe recycling service, and earn a bit of extra cash for doing so! 

The majority of modern shoes are made up of synthetic materials such as rubber and plastic, making them slow to decompose in landfills. Because of this, it is important to explore more sustainable options when wanting to declutter your shoe rack.

Our cash-for-shoes service offers a hassle-free solution to declutter your wardrobe in an eco-friendly way. We do this by extending the life of your shoes before they end up in landfill, saving excess CO2 emissions.
