The top eco-friendly shoes for toddlers and children are as much about the socially-responsible company manufacturing them as it is about the unique shoes themselves. A new youth line is now available for environmentally conscious kids, offering affordably stylish natural support for little or big children’s feet, comparably priced, with an added humanitarian bonus incentive.
Who knew something so good for our global community and environment could look so good on our kid’s feet? With toddler styles ranging from princess-pink patchwork and silvery-glitter Mary Jane’s for your baby girl, to adventurer’s themed nautical and camouflage slip-ons, which will stay on your active baby boy. Youth styles are also available in cool tween themes for your emerging young, socially-conscious humanitarians and environmentalists.
Environmentally and globally friendly “Tiny Toms” canvas toddler shoes are available in sizes 2 to 13 for a mere $34.00 for two pairs (one to wear and one to give). The “Youth” styles are available in sizes 1 to 6 for $38.00 (two pairs) and the giving is built right in! Toms Shoes now carries t-shirts, hoodies and gift packs also bearing the “one for one” giving resolution, as it’s all about the shoes!
Tomorrow’s shoes became “Toms Shoes” and are available at select retailers or online at TOMSshoes.com with daily updates on Twitter.com/TOMSshoes. This innovative company was founded in 2006, after global traveler and entrepreneur Blake Mycoskie visited Argentina where he witnessed poor children contracting diseases through cuts in their feet, simply because they did not own a pair of shoes. Determined to help, Blake created a shoe business with the motto: one for one, which places a new pair of Toms Shoes onto a poor child in a poverty-stricken nation for every pair purchased.
If you’d like to be involved or help, all Toms Shoes networking sites are linked to the above referenced website under the headings; “get-involved” and “community” tabs. You can also get involved in any of the numerous giving promotions, internships or events by following their daily updates on Twitter.com/TOMSshoes or catch them tip-toeing through the social networking sites YouTube, facebook and myspace, as well as the TOMSshoesBlog.com detailing current promotions such as Toms Shoes first-ever fund-raising event “America’s Giving Challenge”.
“America’s Giving Challenge” is only offered for a limited time however you can make a seasonal donation of $10.00 to send shoes to an at-risk child in need. Think of it, no Christmas wrapping, shipping or frenzied shopping crowds; simply make a donation to Toms Shoes in the name of those on your gift list, and be sure to tell your recipients about their generous holiday shoe donations for needy at-risk children.
Why not make your children’s Christmas gifts count this year; with a stylish pair of Toms? Since they outgrow their shoes so quickly, a new pair makes a perfect gift, and if you include a couple of fabric marker pens in a box of white canvas Toms Shoes your kids can design a signature pair.
Wrap them up with a note from Santa explaining that a needy child is also getting a matching pair of shoes somewhere around the world. Inspire your children to be socially and environmentally conscious every time they look down at their own feet wearing a new pair of shoes, and celebrate the holidays in the true spirit of giving!
