Feet in shoes are protected feet. Protected from injury and, in areas of low sanitation, the spread of infection.
Noticing her son, Sal, was outgrowing his shoes long before out wearing them, and that shoes are difficult to recycle, CJ Bowry set up Sal's Shoes to find new feet for old shoes.
At the time of this talk, equipped with a logo, a website, a Twitter account and a Facebook page, Sal and her team had collected over 8,000 pairs of outgrown kids shoes and found them new feet in 8 countries worldwide. That number is now over 2million pairs, in 49 countries around the world! Incredible.
