Rainbow's philosophy starts in its soles; they're constructed in layers which allow them to be repaired where needed. Rainbow accepts worn Rainbow sandals for donation to be repaired and then re-donated to victims of natural disasters and homelessness through their Repair, Reuse, Recycle program. Recycling the sandals serves the double purpose of helping those in need and preventing repairable things from unnecessarily ending up in a landfill.
