CALLING ON SCHOOLS TO STEP UP FOR THE PLANET

TREADLIGHTLY SCHOOL
RECYCLING SHOE DRIVE

TreadLightly is calling on schools to step up for the planet and win prizes for their school by collecting unwanted shoes from teachers, students, and parents over one-week (21-27 March) to help keep shoes out of landfill. 

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE? 

The school shoe recycling initiative is open to all childcare centres, primary and secondary schools around Australia, with eight prize packs worth over $12,000 in total. 

 

TreadLightly is passionate about helping all children understand the important role they can play in lowering their impact on the planet. Download our free resources to use and share in the classroom.

Did you know shoe components can take up to 1000 years to decompose?

HOW does IT WORK?

Step 1. Register by Friday 18 March 2022 to participate.

Step 2. Spread the word.
Tell everyone at your school! Check out our poster here.

Step 3. Get creative.
Make recycling fun with TreadLightly activities for the classroom. Check them out here. There’s also the chance to win an extra prize!

Step 4. Start collecting!
Collect as many unwanted shoes as you can between 21-27 March 2022!! Ask teachers, parents, and students to step up and do their bit for the planet for a chance to win.

Step 5. Get counting! Once you have collected your shoes, count every single shoe (they don’t need to be a pair) then complete the form we email out to you on registration. And we’ll collect the shoes from you directly! Winners will be notified by Friday 01 April 2022.
