Tom's of Maine
"In 1988, after 18 years in business, the Tom's of Maine community realized that we needed to formalize our values and beliefs into foundational documents to help guide the future growth and management of our company. Led by Tom and Kate Chappell, our cofounders, the community met and grappled with such thorny philosophical concepts as ethics, science, legality, emotion, and morality and how it all applied to running a sustainable business eventually emerging with our Reason for Being."
Reason of Being
- To serve our customers' health needs with imaginative science from plants and minerals;
- To inspire all those we serve with a mission of responsibility and goodness;
- To empower others by sharing our knowledge, time, talents, and profits; and
- To help create a better world by exchanging our faith, experience, and hope.
