It is a casual everyday sneaker TOMS says “you can live in, while living your values”, because every purchase supports local communities and builds equity at the ground level through TOMS commitment of ⅓ of profits to grassroots organizations.
In its latest Impact Report, TOMS noted that over $2 million in grants were given to 43 community-based organizations, impacting over 20 communities and 400,000 lives in 2021.
Honestly, TOMS Shoes is such an accessible and fairly-priced casual footwear company that it’s hard to say who wouldn’t wear these shoes.
TOMS was the original buy one, donate one company, sending out millions of pairs of shoes to those in need. Now, the company has pivoted to meet changing demands, investing profits in grassroots organizations to invest in the planet and community organizations.
TOMS announced it would be leaving the one-for-one model behind, for good. Instead, it will donate at least one-third of annual net profits to grassroots organizations.
We’re all about transparency, accountability, and of course, celebrating the incredible impact of our community. TOMS in the News is where we gather and share conversations, key updates, and coverage of all things TOMS. Articles, interviews—you get the gist.
