‘Tis the season to be grateful and considerate of others in need. To ensure a brighter future, TOMS and 30 different companies came together to compile a new form of online retail, one that is full of social responsibility and supportive causes.  TOMS Marketplace is an online destination that hosts a big collection of products that ranges from accessories to sports equipment – 200 socially conscious products to be exact. The site made its debut today, and is meant to be a place where people can share meaningful stories and build deep relationships to giving those in need the necessities of life.The Marketplace is a platform where social entrepreneurs can gather and address the problems of the world as a whole.

Many of these companies follow the same One for One ideology of giving, but in their own distinct and important way. Some products use a portion of their process to support education, fight hunger, or fund forestry. Others offer people financial support by creating employment in regions that lack economic opportunities. Companies that have signed on board include The Honest Company, Lemiem, and many others.

Products sold on Marketplace range from $5 to $500. While the site is still in its preliminary stages, companies that are currently featured have committed to delivering their mission statements of the highest standard. This goes beyond just free shoes for people in underdeveloped areas, it a chance to create a completely different lifestyle for those less fortunate than us.
