Not only do I appreciate their business model and philanthropy, I really love that they sell vegan and eco-friendly shoes. Several of their shoe models are made from hemp and recycled materials. TOMS Shoes are sold locally in Whole Foods, Nordstroms, Hub Clothing, Stride Rite, Frances, Palm Creek Golf, T's Accessories, and Here On the Corner. (Yeah, I haven't heard of any of the stores listed after Stride Rite either.)
Anyway, so this post is about raising awareness for a good cause, and highlighting a business that offers vegan and eco-friendly products. This year I will be going barefoot at home and virtually. I found out about the campaign fairly last minute, and if this is the first you are hearing of it, you did too. I'd really like to see about participating in one of the barefoot walks next year (with one of the shirts below!)
Kristen Bell, one of my favorite vegetarian celebs, and
PETA's 2006 sexiest vegetarian, supporting the cause.
