No business is perfect, but I really admire the ones that are constantly trying to be better. It can't be easy to avoid the "anything to profit!" mindset in favor of "How can I leave the world a better, more sustainable place?"

I promise I don't live in a hole! I know there have been criticisms of TOMS Shoes and companies like it. But it looks like TOMS, at least, has been listening to them. Check out the CEO's response to critics and his plan to have one-third of all shoes produced in the countries to which the company donates by the end of 2015. Jobs! Let’s hope it happens.
The founder and CEO of TOMS, Blake Mycoskie, was featured in this video via I Am Eco Warrior because the people behind it think he's doing a solid favor to the environment. And no, we weren't paid to promote it. We would tell you! Thumbnail image via Thinkstock.
