3 Aimee Marks
- TOM Organics
Aimee Marks started her business after she decided she’d had enough of non-organic and inefficiently packaged tampons.
That was when Marks was in year 12 and only 18.
Her brand TOM Organics was launched in 2009 and has been continuing to grow for seven years.
TOM Organics continues to broaden its product range by stepping into the maternity and baby product categories.
“I’ve got 18-month old twins and have used way too many products that aren’t on that environmentally-friendly spectrum,” Marks says.
“So we’re taking on the big brands again, and launching a baby and maternity range in July into Coles and hopefully into Woolworths [as well]. That’s going to be enormous for us, it’ll double our business size in a year.”
