Our Impact

TOM Organic was founded on the philosophy that women should never have to compromise their wellbeing or the health of the planet with the products they buy.

We seek to enrich women’s lives by exercising social and ethical responsibility in every aspect of our work—from where we source our organic cotton to the way we run our business.
We see our impact as threefold:

CONSCIOUS CHOICE

giving you the power to make informed product decisions and talk openly about your needs.

Supply Chain

Many of us are quick to read the ingredient list on the foods we buy, yet we don’t often think about what is in the products we use in the most delicate part of our bodies. It is made more difficult as feminine hygiene products are not required to list ingredients on their packaging. As a brand, we believe in complete transparency and happily spell out our ingredients – we have nothing to hide.

Here is a little bit more information to help inform your choice:

Certified organic cotton

We source the finest Certified Organic Cotton available from Certified Organic farms. Unlike conventional cotton farms, the farmers are not exposed to harmful synthetic pesticides because organic cotton is not sprayed with them.

Organic Standards

All of the cotton used in our products is certified organic to both the international GOTS Standard and the Australian Organic Standard. The ACO audits our entire supply chain annually.

Transparency

We are committed to building a completely transparent supply chain. We believe it is important to understand the journey that every single ingredient in our products has taken to get the supermarket shelf. We're also committed to sharing that journey with you.

Packaging

All our outer packaging is recyclable, and we use only soy-based inks when printing.

Biodegradable

Some of our finished products are 100% biodegradable, others are leading the way.

Manufacturing

We manufacture in the EU and conduct annual audits to ensure fair labour and quality standards are met.

Our certifications

TOM Organic is an Australian Certified Organic Business

ACO

All our pads and tampons are made with ACO certified organic cotton. Certification ensures compliance with national production standards and allows trace back of all products to their origin. The cotton used in our pads and tampons is grown free from synthetic pesticides meaning less irritation in the most sensitive and absorbent part of a woman’s body.

PETA

All of our products are PETA certified Vegan. This means we choose not to test on animals. Further, we pledge not to conduct or commission any animal tests on ingredients, formulations, or finished products and will not do so into the future.

Giving back

The TOM Co commits to giving back to our local community.

Melbourne Period Project

We frequently donate personal care products to the Melbourne Period Project who in turn supply these products to homeless women, also providing care and support.

"From woman to woman, lets be more conscious about what we put in our bodies and look after our health and our environment."
