About the Founder:
Aimee Marks came up with the idea for organic cotton tampons and pads while working on a high school project: ‘how do I solve the problem of tampons falling out in my handbag?’
But it quickly evolved into something far deeper as she discovered the pesticides and synthetic ingredients used in traditional tampons and pads. In 2009, TOM Organic was launched, giving Australian women access to pure and reliable organic tampons and pads.
“I had this idea in me and I couldn’t believe no one had done this in this way before”.
Aimee was committed to ensuring only the purest imaginable organic cotton touches the most delicate area of a woman’s body. This means there is not a single chemical in any part of the process from the air, water, soil and local waterways of the communities that grow the cotton all the way to your bathroom.
Aimee is committed to closing the loop on the woman’s entire lifecycle of products – her inspiration is to become a trusted brand for each life stage from periods, to pregnancy, to birth, to baby.
