We appreciate all the companies which integrates sustainability and social responsibility into their business. TOMS is definitely one of them and best known for its community give back program "One for One." We want to share with you our visit to TOMS Austin store during our trip to Texas last November.
The store front is TOMS Roasting Company, serving order-to-make coffee and packaged roasted beans. With every bag of coffee you purchase, TOMS will give one week of clean water to a person in need.
The store is sectioned into shoes and sunglasses, as well as sitting area at the back. The world map was covered by shoes and sunglasses stickers, which were used to visualize the 60+ countries TOMS has "changed live in."
It also has a lovely backyard, with a hammock and a vintage van. People were hanging out or reading in fuzzy sunshine and it was such a relaxing and harmonious vibe, which matches TOMS cultural image.
TOMS is indeed a groundbreaking company that brings corporate responsibility to its highest priority. We are looking forward to more companies with new ideas to make this world a better one.
