"We make decisions every day, at home and at work, that impact the health of our families, our communities, our environment. No one is perfect - we're all trying to do better - but we should try to do something. If every company empowered their people to find ways to lessen their impact on the earth, we'd see a lot of positive changes." -- Lucinda Alcorn, National Distributor Team Leader
Like you, Tom's of Maine employees are concerned about caring for the natural world and staying healthy while minimizing their impact on the environment. At every level of our organization, our people focus on making products that serve your needs in ways that honor your (and their!) concerns about issues such as water pollution, energy use, and ingredient safety.
From sourcing to manufacturing to packaging, we pay close attention to the details and always strive to improve the environmental impact of our products and processes. We also actively support the preservation and protection of our nation's rivers and waterways through our Rivers Awareness Partnership.
We're far from perfect, but hope that our efforts continue to create positive change and improve our sustainability with each passing year!
