The Best Socks For Your Feet & Planet!

Why you should care

A pair of toasty warm socks can heat up your feet and a homeless person in need too.

By Hey Social Good

Whether it’s winter or summer, there are those moments in life when a pair of comfy, warm and cozy socks can be the perfect answer to cold feet, a tough workday, and the blues. Have you ever had a pair of special socks with holiday cheer on it given to you by a bestie or ones with pine trees on it commemorating a special winter hiking trip? If so, then you’ll know what we mean. The exciting thing is that there are so many sock companies who are pushing the envelope and doing more with just making comfy socks. Socks that give back support homeless shelters, children’s homes and hospitals. Next time you purchase new socks, go for a pair that makes a direct positive impact. It’s a double whammy!

First, What To Do With Old Socks?

  • Collect all your socks that have holes and loose elastic or just plain worn out.
  • Put them in a bag to take to recycling! Since textiles make up 5% of trash in US landfills, throwing them in the trash is not the way to go.  
  • The easiest thing to do is to swing by your local Goodwill drop off because they will recycle textiles that can’t be sold.
