Tom’s of Maine has been in business for over 40 years, and we have always loved to talk to the people who buy and use our products.  This open and honest dialogue has been a great way for us to get and share new information and, more importantly, has sometimes been used to guide the decisions we make as a company.  Our consumers sometimes have the best ideas on the ways we can take care of their health, their communities, and our planet.

We’d like to introduce you to a group of passionate and enthusiastic consumers who we have dubbed the Tom’s of Maine Goodness Circle.  This diverse group is made up of active community members, mothers, and professionals who share a passion for blogging about healthy living.  Our 20 members are all a unique and special part of the Tom’s of Maine community.  We hope you will find the information and opinions they share to be valuable, and look forward to hearing your feedback!

You can follow them all on Twitter by visiting our Goodness Circle Twitter List here.
