-- 2.8 million gallons of waste water
-- 7 billion BTUs of electricity -- that's 70 years of electricity as
required by the average U.S. home.
-- 1 million pounds of greenhouse gases -- that's 1 million miles
traveled in the average U.S. car
-- 6,000 pounds of air pollution (HAPs, VOCs, TRSs combined)
Tom's of Maine also:
-- Uses vegetable-based inks on all of our professionally printed
materials and packaging
-- Wraps bar soaps in biodegradable cellulose made from wood fibers
