How TOMS Shoes Makes a Difference

Insights & Ideas Team •  October 5, 2015 | Inspiring Stories

TOMS’s “one for one” business philosophy is simple: Buy a product and the company will help someone in need. The company originally started with shoes; for every purchase of a pair, a child in need would receive one in return. As TOMS expanded their product lines to eyewear, bags, apparel and coffee, it allowed the company to grow the ways it can help others. They now are able to provide clean drinking water, eye surgeries and safer births to those less fortunate.
