Challenge for Stores
Every year, millions of shoes are placed in “off-price” channels in an attempt by companies to recover money for returns, unsold or unwanted footwear. But, when these items end up in discount shops or outlets, the brand image can be hurt. In many cases, brands prefer to destroy or throw away the shoes rather than jeopardize their brand. However, as corporations, businesses, government and society try to deal with global climate change, adding to the world’s carbon footprint is not socially responsible.
Instead when you reach out to Funds2Orgs, we will issue you a check for branded gently worn, used or new shoes, odd lots, and store returns.
What happens with the shoes?
When Funds2Orgs issues you a check for the shoes, we consolidate the footwear with others and ship the merchandise to micro-entrepreneurs in developing nations around the planet. Because of systemic poverty and lack of job opportunities, millions around the world have to create their own work prospects, and many turn to selling shoes in the local communities for commerce and profit.
