This Sunday’s May 5th, and those of you partaking in a fiesta are in good company…if we do say so ourselves. That day marks seven years since Blake launched this One for One company in a scrappy little home in Venice, California.
That’s right: TOMS turns 7 this Sunday, and in the midst of our celebration for the movement that’s kind of our baby, we’re realizing that we’ve come a loooong way since the early days.
Since the saying goes, ‘we live in the house we all build,’ we thought it’d be pretty neat to track the growth of the TOMS family through the lens of the humble abodes we’ve called home throughout the years.
We have no shortage of unique and diverse employees here at good ol’ HQ and those qualities are definitely reflected in the personal style of each person. From custom alpargatas with panda bears painted on them from a Style Your Sole event to a special hat bought for a trek to South America, our style ranges from unconventional to inspired (which is a pretty accurate reflection of how we do things ‘round here), and we want to share these folks with all of you!
So, without further ado, meet Reva. She works on the marketing team, drags us to Cardio Sculpt group fitness on Tuesdays, and can usually be found with her fluffly pup, named Chewie, resting on her lap.
There’s an eclectic blend of people roaming around our creative space in L.A., a city with an even greater blend of diverse people in pockets of town known for unique quirks. Here at TOMS, as high noon rolls in, there’s another blend that brings us together…and it’s greenChristine, who works with the Supply Chain team at TOMS HQ, will take it from here…
But ourselves? Not so much.
After a nice long weekend and a Monday trek to work, you’re a bit parched. You want a sip of water, so you head to one of the sinks to fill up your cup before you start your day. On auto-pilot, you reach to activate the faucet. You can’t because there’s a JERRY CAN in the sink, telling you the sink’s out of order?!?
Thaaaaaat’s weird. Nothing like forgetting today’s April Fools’ Day, and then remembering because your friends at charity: water just pulled a cross-country fast-one on you!
Nice work, guys…but not THAT nice. You New Yorkers think you’re so tough…check who took over your office. Mwuahaha.
(TOMS fans: stay tuned. We have a feeling this is just the beginning…)
