CONGRATULATIONS WORN FOR GOOD!

Worn for Good will receive $10,000 from TOM Organic to help with the launch of their online platform which brings luxury fashion into the circular economy, while aiding a better future for women in need.

It was incredibly difficult to choose a winner from 5 incredible businesses who are each so clearly making an impact for the better. As we now face large levels of uncertainty in both our communities, and the world at large, we feel there has never been a more important time to support the small and local businesses that are making a difference.
TOM Organic will be partnering with each of the Pitch for Purpose finalists to support them through the current climate. Be inspired by each of these businesses below and expect to see more of them across the TOM Organic social channels as we work on brand collaborations, content series and more!
