Why do we want your shoes?

Shoes are one the most difficult items to recycle, as they can be made up of as many as 30 individual components in different materials, including plastics. According to some studies, of the 24.2 billion pairs of shoes made each year,  90% of  them end up in a landfill. We want to help you make a more sustainable choice when it comes to the enc of your shoes' life.

What will happen to your old shoes?

We will take your old Beya flats apart and compost some of the pieces, recycle others and through our network of artists and creatives up-cycle the rest giving your shoes a second life. Watch out for the big reveal on Earth Day 2020.

How does the trade in work?
