I was contacted by the folks at Mountain Warehouse HQ a week or so back about the ‘Re-boot’ charity campaign they are currently running. If you have an old pair of (serviceable) boots and want to hand them in you can get a discount on a new pair. And if you share that on social media along with your story about what those boots have seen, you have a chance of winning a free pair of boots each week.
More interesting though is that those old boots will be used to benefit the excellent British Exploring Society and serve the Reduce-Reuse-Recycle ethos of supporting partner, United Shoe Recycling Company. So a great idea all round I think.
Here are my old boots on their way to the collection point at Glossop Mountain Warehouse.
