Q&A with Toad&Co: Collaboration with Grand Trunk
Grand Trunk is proud to highlight our collaborative partners that we have been lucky enough to work with and the incredible custom designs that we have had a hand in creating.
This week we are highlighting the incredible people over at Toad&Co, we asked them a few questions and here are their responses. I think you'll learn to love them as much as we do!
- How did you first hear about Grand Trunk?
We met one of the early ambassadors for Grand Trunk and developed a great relationship. Then we continued to see them grow and through our social media channels and at trade shows.
- What about Grand Trunk made it a great fit for your brand?
We really connected around Grand Trunk’s spirit for adventure and travel. We were also really impacted by their mission to inspire people to get outdoors.
- You have tons of amazing prints and patterns, what inspired your designs for the hammock?
Our patterns for the season were inspired by Alaska – both the wilderness and the native people. The two prints we selected were designed after textiles and baskets that we saw during our inspiration research.
- Does your brand support a special cause or initiative?
We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to do what they love. That’s why a portion of every Toad&Co garment purchased directly contributes to creating opportunities for adults with disabilities. From job training to outdoor adventures, your purchase goes a long way to support our mission. We offer top-notch career opportunities in our warehouse and take folks on life-changing trips to the great outdoors.
- How does your brand make an impact on its industry?
We look to the outdoors for inspiration to live and work and play every day, and thus recognize our responsibility to help protect the lands and waterways that we rely on. We are active members in national organizations like The Conservation Alliance & Leave No Trace while also supporting local environmental protection organizations wherever you find the Toad. Now, perhaps more than ever, we need to stand up for the environment and make commitments to ensure the prosperity of the wilderness for generations to come.
6. What makes Toad&Co unique? Why have your customers fallen in love with your brand.
Toad&Co is about so much more than clothing. As a 21 year old, privately held, lifestyle brand inspired by the outdoors, we see our business as the tinder to spark global change. We make socially and environmentally committed garments that are equally suited for the rigors of the trail or tavern. We practice what we preach and every Toad&Co product and partnership is a shining example of our commitments. A portion of every sale goes toward supporting adults with developmental disabilities, and 90% of our products are eco-friendly. We’re committed to improving season after season and making a greater difference every day.
- What is your company’s mission?
We are here to continually inspire people to live their fullest lives through our product, practices and personality.
