TOMS are made from pig skin, which make up the bottom padding, cotton, outside shell covering foot, and plastic foam, making the sole.
Cotton- Cotton is grown on plants, where people then have to harvest it. It is then spun and woven to be suitable for the shoes. After this process, it is given to the companies in China to be produced. Organization TOMS is a profit
organization that helps the issue of poverty. When you buy a pair of TOMS shoes, you are then "giving" a pair to a child or adult in need. 75% of the profits made from the sales of these shoes then go to different countries to continue assisting with this problem.
