Shoe Drive

Until April 18th, bring your used shoes to the collection box in the Zoltek HQ lobby. Clean out your closet and bring in your used shoes to be donated to developing countries.

Why donate?

  • Per the department of the Interior, 300 Million pairs of shoes are put into landfills in the US annually.
  • It’s estimated that 20 billion pairs of shoes are produced annually.
  • Depending on the composition of materials used, it can take 20-50 years for shoes to decompose in a landfill.
  • Ethylene Vinyl Acetate, which makes up the midsole of most running shoes, can last for as long as 1,000 years in a landfill.

St. Louis Crisis Nursery Collection

Staff at St. Peters and MRP are purchasing reduced price memory foam insoles and all the money is being donated to Saint Louis Crisis Nursery. If you are interested in participating, please contact your HR rep.
