Toms, the shoe label which donates a pair of shoes to kids in need for each pair sold, has recently partnered with Whole Foods to create an exclusive, eco-friendly vegan collection. Per FWD: "TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie saw the collaboration as an opportunity for his company...to broaden their consumer market, and in turn, boost their aid efforts...The company currently sends shoes to Argentina, South Africa and Ethiopia and is planning to begin donations in the U.S." One of the exclusive pairs is pictured right.
