Green Fashion Monday: Green Shoes for Clean Water

Toms shoes On Fashion Monday, we highlight a hip, green fashion item. Got a stylish eco-friendly product to recommend? Tell us about it and look for it in an upcoming blog post.

Looking for a good cause with a good fit? Toms shoes has partnered with Charity: Water to help provide drinking water to Africans in need. Proceeds ($5 worth) from two new limited-edition designs, which are vegan and made with hemp and recycled materials, will go toward the construction of a well in Sekura, a northwest Ethiopian village that currently has no access to clean water. As with all Toms shoes, for each of these pairs sold, a new pair will be sent to a disadvantaged child. $58
