Go Green, Donate to Shoebox Recycling Program

Do you have extra shoes in your closet?

Go green this spring by participating in the first ever Shoe Collection, organized by the Cooper “Green Team” and the Cooper Foundation!

Worn is Not Worn Out

Bring in your gently used shoes and sneakers so they can be recycled and reused by those in need of affordable footwear in developing countries.

Support Cooper

The Cooper Foundation will receive funds from Shoe Box Recycling based on the total weight of the shoes collected. Whatever we raise will support a Green Team initiative through the Cooper Foundation.
