Living Responsibly Locally

Local charities can earn money for their programs. These projects bring communities together for the common good.


We need your gently-used shoes!


Save the Earth Projects (S.T.E.P.)

Over 1 billion people don't have access to safe, clean drinking water in the world. Many don't even have access to proper sanitation.


Thirst Aid Stands (TM) are drink stands that not only quench the thirst of local patrons, but raise funds and awareness for the global water crisis.

  • Go through your closets and garage and collect the gently-used shoes you no longer wear
  • If you have at least 20 pair and a box, email us at SaveTheEarthProjects@gmail.com and we will have our partners send you a free shipping label to ship your shoes
  • If you have 200 or more pair, we can send you collection boxes (they hold ~40 pair each and come pre-labeled for shipping)
  • If you have a favorite charity and would like to help them earn $.50 per pound of shoes collected, let us know! We will help you set up a S.T.E.P. Leave a GOOD Footprint drive.

Together we can make a BIG difference. One S.T.E.P. at at time!

S.T.E.P. Outside the Box (TM)

Our newest program to be announced soon. It will be a great way to share with each other!

Raising Awareness Nationally

Did you know that over 100 million shoes wind up in USA Landfills annually? It can take hundreds of years for materials in our shoes to breakdown. Our shoe collection project puts reuse in front of recycle. We take our resources for granted nationally. Did you know that there are community gardens that are very successful from California to Florida? Did you know that there are areas in the USA that have drinking water resources depleting to threatening levels?

Leave a GOOD Footprint (TM)

Giving Globally

Not only do the local charities benefit financially, and our landfills are reduced from strain, but these shoes are deployed globally to areas where shoes are greatly needed. We are reducing emissions by growing our own foods, and we are raising funds for much needed water resources and sanitation programs across the world.

OR, Create your OWN S.T.E.P. Project and share it with us on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/SaveTheEarthProjects
