Payless ShoeSource

The Nature Conservancy and Payless ShoeSource partnered to support the Conservancy’s Plant a Billion Trees campaign. As part of Payless’ plan to support the Plant a Billion Trees campaign, Payless offered an exclusive, stylish reusable shopping bag for $1.99 to shoppers in more than 4,000 stores in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico, and will contribute $1 from each bag sold to the program with a minimum contribution of $100,000.

Furthermore, in 2009, Payless raised over $200,000 for the Plant A Billion Trees campaign through sales of their new brand Zoe & Zac and the reusable tote bag.
