Tom's of Maine is a leading natural products company focused on high quality oral and personal care products. The company has a long-standing commitment to supporting people, communities and the living planet. For over 40 years, Tom's of Maine has sponsored hundreds of non-profit efforts by giving 10 percent of its profits back to the community and encouraging employees to use 5 percent (12 days) of employee time to volunteer. Since 2006, 100 percent of the electricity consumption at their factory has been offset by investing in wind energy credits. This eliminates production of 1.5 million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions annually — the equivalent of planting 214 acres of trees! Tom's of Maine also purchases renewable energy (hydro and biomass) for its offices and encourages employees to use the company's Green Car puchasing benefit. Tom's of Maine employees regularly contribute suggestions for improving the company’s high sustainability standards. And their ideas are critical to the company's sensitive way of doing business. Tom's of Maine enjoys partnering to support lasting, positive change that is good for the earth and us all.
