the problem Treadlightly exists to solve
Shoes make their way to Australian shores each year

HELP US TO RECYCLE ONE MILLION PAIRS OF SPORTS AND ACTIVE LIFESTYLE SHOES
How it works
Old Sport shoes
Take your pre-loved sports shoes into a participating retailer and drop them off in the designated collection unit.
Your footwear is collected and sent to the recycling plant for sorting, breakdown and processing here in Australia.
Reusable components are extracted, including rubber, leather and fibres at the recycling facility.
Reclaimed materials are used to manufacture new products such as gym mats, floors and playgrounds.
