We all know about Toms Shoes.
Their "buy a pair give a pair" philosophy has provided shoes
for more than 600,000 children so far.
When giving back means buying comfortable and fashionable sneakers, why not?
I gave them to my nieces and nephews for Christmas
a few years back and they have all become converts :)
Now your flip-flop purchases can have a positive impact as well:
Check out Sole Rebels, an Ethiopian-based company founded by
Native Bethlehem Alemu.
She makes her shoes from old rubber tires,
recycled army pants ("now we are using it for peace"),
and fabrics made by women's groups in Zenabwork,
who use traditional cotton spinning techniques.
When you have a business doing this kind of good in their community,
it's really not much of a decision to buy from them, is it?
but for now, let's support the ones we already have..
