One Shoe Can Make a Difference: Here’s How

Shoes

From the South Milwaukee High School English Department …

The South Milwaukee High School English Department has officially begun collecting any gently worn gym shoes, boots, dress shoes, and sandals to raise money for senior scholarships! 

Staff, students, friends and family (and the community) are all welcome to participate! Collections will run through the end of May and can be dropped off at the high school or with any high school English teacher.

As you consider helping out, consider this …

  • 600 million shoes are thrown away each year into landfills.
  • The average shoe takes 79 years to decompose.
  • Towns with open landfills have an higher incidence of respiratory disease because of the chemicals released from decomposed shoes.
