TOMS, if you haven’t heard about it, is a company that matches every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. It’s grounded on the One for One principle. TOMS was created by American Blake Mycoskie in 2006 after he befriended children in Argentina who had no shoes to protect their feet. (Yes, the founder’s name is Blake. Don’t worry, akala ko rin Kuya Tom. The name comes from the word tomorrow and the idea that we will have a better tomorrow. PAK!)
TOMS proves that a successful business can have a clear social conscience. In other words, it’s not just a shoe company, it’s a movement.
And a green one at that. TOMS was featured in Tree Hugger back in 2008. I support and purchase products that use earth-friendly and animal-friendly materials. The shoes in their Vegan line contain no animal products.
See you at the Campus Club launch!
