Welcome to ASGA SOS Initiative

Each year, over 25 million pairs of sports shoes are imported into Australia. With only 1% estimated to be recycled, it’s a waste problem that requires an immediate and innovative solution. The Australian Sporting Goods Association and Save Our Soles, and a number of major sporting brands have come together to create the ASGA Save Our Soles Footwear Recycling Initiative program to move the needle towards supply-chain sustainability.
