When you shop for new running shoes, what do you do with your old ones? Do you toss them in the garbage? Let them pile up in your closet? Seems like kind of a waste, right?
In just a couple of weeks, YOU can change the way you buy running shoes AND change the world. You think I’m kidding? Well, get ready for what I’m about to tell you…
Kindrunner is a new company that has big plans for how shoes are bought and reused across the world. Starting June 1st, you will be able to shop their online store and interact with expert shoe fitters, getting the experience of a local running store with the click of your mouse. Not only can you find the perfect pair, but you can trade in your old pair and get PAID for it. Yes, I said paid! So exciting!
Once you make a purchase, you send them your old pair and they reward you with Kindness Cash, which you can use toward your next purchase. Plus, shipping is free!!!! That’s a win-win!
The best part is that you’ll be making a huge difference for someone around the world who is in dire need of shoes. Kindrunner is partnering with Soles 4 Souls and the MORE Foundation, who will donate the shoes to people who need them. Instead of piling up in a landfill and contributing to environmental waste, your shoes will instead be reused to touch someone with a simple, yet powerful gift. I think this is so cool.
I’m very lucky to be working with Kindrunner as an ambassador. I think it’s so important to give back. Sometimes it doesn’t take much to change someone’s life. This is a great way to really make difference. I can’t wait to fill you in on all the cool things they’re doing to help runners, improve environment health, and help so many deserving people in the process.
I encourage you to go check them out! For every 500 likes on Facebook, they will give away a pair of selected running shoes to one winner and a running partner of their choosing. So make sure you go to their Facebook page and LIKE them! You can also find them on Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.
