I recently read  that it takes about 1000 years for the average pair of shoes to decompose in a landfill. That is not a typo - 1000 YEARS!  I had just bought a new pair of cute brown boots and took them back after I read it.  Not only did that save me forty buckeroos, I felt a bit better about all of the shoes I have that will be here long after my grandchildrens grandchildrens grandchildrens children are born.  It was one tiny step on my part. I love to shop for shoes but I have never thought about the impact on the earth.  I will from now on!!
