WaterStep collects gently used shoes! Athletic shoes, such as running and basketball shoes are
preferable.


WaterStep is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that believes everyone should have access to
safe water and that no one should suffer from waterborne illnesses. WaterStep implements
water projects and equips people with tools and training in water purification, disaster relief,
sanitation, health education, and well repair. Since its founding in 1995, WaterStep has brought
safe water to millions of people in over 50 countries.
Gently used shoes provide funding for WaterStep to Save Lives with Safe Water!
1. The shoes are exported, repurposed and ultimately provide affordable footwear to
people in the developing world who now have increased protection against disease as a
result of wearing shoes.
2. The program also provides impoverished individuals and families in these areas with the
ability to have microbusinesses, adding economic benefits to their communities.
3. WaterStep collects on average 30,000 pounds of shoes each month, so that's 30,000
pounds of waste that is kept from going into landfills.
4. The proceeds received from gently used shoes help to fund WaterStep water projects
worldwide.
