As we shared at the beginning of the year, the sixth grade partnered with GotSneakers, an organization that helps keep sneakers out of landfills by recycling and reusing them. Each pair of shoes donated can earn their class money, which they are using to symbolically adopt a species affected by climate change as part of their way to give back.
To date, 12 bags of sneakers have been sent to GotSneakers. Thank you to everyone who helped support this initiative. Your donations have really helped the environment:
- Shoes displaced from landfill: 206
- Carbon Dioxide: 6180 Pounds Displaced
- Water: 464,942 Gallons Saved
It isn’t too late to donate sneakers! The 6th graders will be collecting sneakers through Friday, June 2nd.
