One-for-One Evolved

Continued social stress for global equality leads to widespread almsgiving

Implications - The now infamous 'one-for-one' retail style, as brought to prominence by TOMS shoes, is experiencing a surge that further embeds it as a mainstay charitable business model. Expanding into all areas of the market, the concept of charitable exchange commerce has garnered the attention of consumers for being an effectively convenient form of philanthropy; instead of making consorted efforts to give back, consumers would prefer to have the legwork done for them. As the guilt associated with traditional product consumption increases from their peers, consumers scramble to meet stringent preferences for a philanthropic lifestyle, aligning themselves with brands affiliated with social and environmental good.
