Jog On – Removing 1million pairs of running shoes from landfill!
Bring your old running shoes to the show and recycle them at the drop off point! You need to do 3x things:
- Bring unwanted running shoes
- Tie the pair of shoes together at the laces.
- Pop them into the collection pods.
Jog On’s mission is this… to get 1m pairs out of landfill.
Jog On estimate that there are in the region of 18bn pairs of running shoes sold in the world every year. That’s the equivalent to 2 pairs of running shoes per person on earth. Yet, there are millions who have no shoes and suffer terribly from sole diseases. They have partnered with logistics and distribution partners to get running shoes to some 15 destinations around the world.
They collect your unwanted running shoes. You can either send them to us or drop them off at the Run Show USA.
They take all running shoes! They then sort them ensuring they are properly paired up and tied together at the laces. All shoes are inspected and prepared to be distributed out. If they are not suitable to be used again, Jog On filter them out and shred those that are “end of life
