Wear Good Wear Love Wear Equity Wear Empathy Wear Purpose Wear Individuality Wear Values Wear Style Wear Support Wear Community Wear Care Wear Comfort

We all make choices about what we wear. We wear our style. We wear our individuality. We wear our values. At TOMS, we are proud to wear our impact on our feet. When you buy TOMS, you help fund access to mental health resources for the millions of people who need them. We do this by giving ⅓ of profits for grassroots good, which includes investing in our impact partners who are building equity at the local level. Wear TOMS. WEAR GOOD.

A Note from Chief Brand & Impact Officer. We each have a lived experience with mental health. That’s what makes this work so important and so core to TOMS’ mission of using business to improve lives. TOMS’ Impact Partners are doing incredible work in this space, and we could not be more honored to be a small part of their efforts.   When you buy TOMS, you help fund access to mental health resources for the millions of people who need them. This is a commitment TOMS made over a year ago as we evolved away from our One for One giving model. Thanks to all of you, the TOMS community, for making this work possible. There are so many ways wearing TOMS is positively impacting lives. Wear TOMS. WEAR GOOD.

Sustainability is a Journey, Not a Destination

We've always been in business to improve lives, which means taking good care of the place we call home.

Our Commitments

To make smart, long-term improvements to our products and practices, we’ve identified key commitments which will carry us through 2025. Take a look at four of them.

30% of footwear products sold in 2022 met our earthwise™ requirements.

line art of a pair of shoes

We have been delayed on measuring our carbon footprint due to the supply chain pressure as a result of the pandemic. We're educating ourselves on carbon measurement and finding ways to reduce our footprint.

sustainable cotton

We aim to source 100% sustainable cotton by 2025. In 2022, we made significant progress towards this by introducing recycled cotton in our most popular shoe - the iconic Alpargata.

greener packaging

We've gone plastic-free in our packaging‐except for some hang tag fastener loops. All our earthwise™ products are 100% plastic-free, and we've switched our samples to use 100% recycled LDPE polybags.

Custom TOMS Insole

Custom insole with 50% more earth-friendly materials (25% recycled PU foam, 15% recycled rubber, 10% bio oil).

Ground-Up Change Starts With Us

In 2020, we made a long-term commitment to ensure our company and culture are rooted in Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Anti-Racism.

Anti-Racist Organization

Our Culture & Experience Committee and DEIA (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Anti-Racism) Committee work to ensure we actively combat systemic racism and policies that lead to inequities.

A day to share, learn and understand systematic racism as we become better allies. Every year, we host a Day of Learning, where we work on building an inclusive, racially equitable culture in our company.

A proactive, data-informed and ongoing system for staff to work directly with our People Team to ensure job descriptions, titles, and compensation reflects the impact each staff member makes.

Not everyone benefits equally from salary negotiations, so we removed them altogether. We publish pay ranges in our open position postings, so all budgeted salary ranges are transparent.

greener packaging

Our program includes everyone‐regardless of level. We monitor representation for both mentees and mentors and encourage all of our staff to share, learn, and grow together.

Staff Demographics.

We are a proud part of the rich and diverse Los Angeles community, and our goal is to be the best representation of the diversity of our hometown. This means creating structures and policies that address equity through the employee lifecycle—from applying, hiring, and onboarding processes to advancement, learning opportunities, and other internal development programs.

Data gathered: October 2022.
* Employees have the option of disclosing their demographic information at TOMS. “Unspecified” represents those who have opted out.

Creating Positive Change Together

We love spending time with our Impact Partners and seeing where we can provide support to their communities.

This year, our employees built mental health first aid kits for partners, helped Brave Trails prep for summer camp, and participated in Homeboy Industries’ 5K race.

TOMS team impact experiences.

Giving Tuesday

Once a year, we close our global offices and dedicate an entire workday to volunteering with local nonprofits and the communities they serve.

This year, our Los Angeles office partnered with SuitUp, an organization that increases career readiness for all students through innovative business plan competitions. Internationally, our EMEA and APAC offices partnered with local community organizations.

Meet Our New HQ

2022 brought new changes to TOMS. We reduced our footprint and moved to a smaller, more efficient space in Culver City.

As part of bringing our new space to life, we invited local artists to share their interpretation of equity on our walls. The result? A beautiful, diverse, inspiring place for all.
