Socks for the homeless & the environment

The holiday season approaches. As I grow older, the idea of socks-as-presents becomes something I never thought possible - good. My more wisened, gray-haired self realizes what my feet have been communicating all along: socks, please.

The Sierra Club recently launched its sock initiative - 'Change your socks, change the world.' For every purchased pair of bamboo/cotton socks, the Sierra Club will donate a pair to the National Coalition for the Homeless. And ten percent of the sales price will fund Sierra Club conservation efforts. Devmir, the sock manufacturer, is based right here in Morrisville, North Carolina.

  1. Thanks for a great post. I hope everybody reading this purchases Sierra Club socks as holiday gifts this year. It will help our environment and make life a little more tolerable for some of the more than 750,000 homeless people in the United States. Maybe that million sock goal can be reached this year after all.
