TOMS Shoes Finds its Way into Whole Foods.

Via on Jun 16, 2009

TOMS Shoes

The beginning of June announced the arrival of TOMS Shoes into Whole Foods around the country.  Whole Foods Market and TOMS Shoes partnered up to create a green, eco-friendly line of footwear.  This exclusive, vegan shoe line is “made of organic cotton, non-leather interior, and recycled rubber from tires for the sole.”

This partnership will widen the recognition and consumer market of TOMS Shoes as well as its mission and environmentally-friendly efforts. The shoes are available in the Whole Body department of the store.

About Lindsey Block

Lindsey Block loves a good picnic, bottle glass of wine and a new recipe. She likes to do all the cliché things: sing in the shower, dance in her underwear in the living room—which her dog doesn't approve of, yet—and take long walks on the beach. She's currently struggling with misanthropy, but working on it every day—although it's hard living in California.

  1. Love TOMS Shoes. Phenomenal example of a company baking in social responsibility to the core of the business and relationship with its customers. Thanks for the tip that they're now available in Whole Foods. I have the Gandhi edition.

  2. Other companies in this line: FEED, Newman's Own, Newman's Own Organics, who else?

  3. […] questions I have about TOMS: are the glues mostly toxic, and why do the shoes fall apart kinda quick (not very eco-responsible?!), and why are many […]

    Corporations legally can't have "social responsibility" as miss Olivia put it. Look up Dodge v. Ford if you don't believe me.

      Why is Whole Foods not listed as a Tom's shoes retailer on Tom's website? I was planning a trip there but don't want to be disappointed.
