I recently had a very inspiring meeting with one of the top schools in the area, Norwich School. An imdependent school with fantastic resources. I enjoy working with the emerging generations to find new routes to creativity and career paths. Meeting with the head of faculties and art department., I am excited to say that they are keen for me to implement a series of footwear projects with them. They loved the fact that we have such a rich footwear heritage here and that Milly J Shoes is based opposite the school, making it very convenient.

It was a very surreal surprise to open my email the other day to discover that I had been nominated and put forward as one of Norfolk's 100 Most inspiring Women! To be nominated is one thing, but to be chosen among many inspiring women in my opinion is another, Thank you for believing in the causes that I continue to fight for. https://www.edp24.co.uk/features/100-most-inspiring-women-in-norfolk-1-6294621

Milly J was visited in the shop and studio by University of East Anglia, International Development students. As part of their thesis, they research the changing social perspectives towards environmental issues, including recycling and landfill. How we start to do things in different ways, in which to help the implications. Is this a changing model in that we are more aware of what happens to our waste and is this a permanent change?
Here at Milly J Shoes, I am pushing the move for the public to bring in their old shoes in order to help reduce the footwear footprint. They in turn have their shoes revitalised and turned into a new design. Most of the UK's landfill is tranferred to China or Poland and this simply isn't economically sustainable! The footwear industry is one of the biggest culprits for poor landfill management.
