Movember Mofiles: Jeremy

You may have noticed our excitement surrounding this month’s special Movember collection of TOMS. We’ve partnered with the Movember organization for five years now, and these shoes have a very special place in our hearts. To date, Movember has raised over $550M for men’s health and funded more than 800 programs globally, targeting prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems. To celebrate our partnership, we interviewed TOMS Mo Bros and Mo Sistas from around the world to learn why they fight for men’s health and how they’ve been going about their moustache journeys. Stay tuned over the coming weeks…

A SUMMER AT TOMS: BACKGROUNDS

It’s halfway through the summer, and the Tribe has spoken. Working at TOMS is awesome. Each department is unique and colorful in its own way, bustling with energy inside of HQ.

Hey TOMS Europe, what are you reading?

The importance of being Earnest is one of my favourites because it is all about mistaken identities and it has some great one-liners. It was funny back when it was first written (over 100 years ago, circa 1895) and it is funny now. Alex As an American cyclist, moving to Amsterdam, the world’s cycling utopia, was a magical experience. When I got hired to work at TOMS EMEA, my sister handed me down the book In The City of Bikes: The Story of the Amsterdam Cyclist.  It gave me a lot to look forward to and background into the long…

The Story Behind our Rwanda Roast

Known as “The Land of a Thousand Hills,” Rwanda’s high elevation allows for production of world- class coffees. Farms in the country tend to be smaller in size, allowing our Master Roaster to micro-source premium beans from specialty farmers. Last Fall, we journeyed to Shyara Mountain in Rwanda to see how a roast comes to life. Allow us to introduce you to some of the people behind the cup. It all starts with sourcing. All of our coffee beans are sourced through direct trade, which means that we work directly with the coffee growers. This way, the farmer sees the most financial…
