Since 2015, Tom’s of Maine has committed more than $1.5 million to help The Nature Conservancy protect and restore natural water. Our communities, economies and natural areas rely on this clean water needed to stay healthy and productive. It provides us with drinking water, irrigation, electricity, critical habitat and nutrients for wildlife, and much more.
In 2018, Tom’s of Maine continues this commitment to help restore and revitalize waterways in need. As part of this, the company is running an Earth Month Turn the Tide™ campaign that will fund four water projects at the Conservancy. Throughout April, Tom’s of Maine is asking the public to help direct funding to these projects by voting for their favorite water-related protection effort.
Vote on one of these four projects via the link below.

Mississippi River Basin
The Mississippi River Basin cradles more than 1,200 million square miles in 31 states—forming the world’s fourth largest river basin. Learn more about how we are working to restore water quality.
Colorado River Basin
The Colorado River supplies drinking water to nearly 40 million people, irrigates more than 5 million acres of land, produces 4,200 megawatts of hydropower, and supports a thriving $26 billion recreation and tourism industry. Learn more about how we are working to protect water for people and nature.
East Coast Dams
Thousands of dams—many 100-150 years old—affect river flow, often cutting off the migrations of fish and other aquatic species completely. Many of these dams are outdated and are no longer in service, but their impacts remain. Learn more about our work removing and rebuilding dams from Maine to Maryland.
Sustainable Rivers Program
Thousands of dams and other water infrastructure throughout the United States provide us with clean drinking water, flood protection, hydropower and even recreational opportunities. Learn how we are working to revitalize America’s water infrastructure to protect nature and support the growing needs of people.
