Caring consumers are increasingly concerned about the ways in which animals are abused and killed for their skins and the toxic process of turning animals’ skins into leather. Luckily, companies like TOMS are stepping up with vegan shoes and accessories to keep you cruelty-free from head to toe. To show our appreciation for TOMS’ selection of vegan items, PETA is presenting the company with our Compassionate Business Award.

7. Natural Burlap Women’s Solana Flip-Flops

TOMS calls these “the perfect ‘by-the-front-door’ sandal,” and we couldn’t agree more. They’re made even more perfect by built-in arch support.
