“The environment is in us, not outside us. The trees are our bloodstream. We are all interconnected, and what you do to the environment, ultimately you will do to yourself.”
Interesting concept, isn’t it? If we look at the marketing that surrounds us, it has typically been designed to promote the lavished capabilities and glossy aesthetics of the final product. However, we also have a growing disconnect between customers and their knowledge about what they are consuming. This is the focus of TOM Organic; the Melbourne based business, dedicated to making pads and tampons without harming the environment, or you, and to help raise awareness about what we’re putting into our bodies.
If we take a closer look at traditional menstruation products, we quickly discover that they are laced with pesticides and synthetic products. The harmful ways in which we treat the environment when we create products is being fed straight back into the most sensitive areas in our bodies.
Through the use of their products, there are a few things we can be sure of:
- We know that what we are putting inside our bodies is pure organic cotton, which is softer, more breathable and less harmful on our skin.
- We know that we’re keeping synthetic pesticides, chemicals and genetically modified materials out of the air, water and soil.
- Our waste (approx. 15,000 per person in a lifetime!) will decompose much faster than conventional pads and tampons
- The packaging is either recyclable or FSC certified, and use only soy-based inks
Being one of the first B-Corp members, we think what TOM organic has done a fantastic job at creating a sustainable option for consumers. In fact, they have been so popular, they have even extended their product range to include maternal pads and baby products such as nappies and wet wipes.
