I love Target so so much. That place really has my number. I can go into the store for face wash and leave with a cart full of stuff! It’s because, according to my kids, Target has everything. They even asked me recently if we got our bathroom tiles there! ha I am able to get everything I need for personal care and groceries. I really love that place!! But this post is not about my love story with Target. It’s about a line of products you can only get at Target. 🙂
Eco Friendly Products at Target
Target is now carrying the eco-friendly Made to Matter Collection of products from Tom’s of Maine! It’s a line of products that is exclusively available at Target. This product line consists of eco-friendly products that are natural, sustainable and organic. It is important to me to use a product that is high quality, and is produced in a earth conscious manner. I only recently started using Tom’s of Maine and I’m already IN LOVE!
Products I Love – Tom’s of Maine Toothpaste and Kids Antiperspirant
One product we use is the Tom’s of Maine toothpaste. My kids like the strawberry version, it gets their little teeth clean and I feel better knowing it is natural. We get enough chemicals into us through everyday living, I don’t need to add to it if I can avoid it. I personally use the Luminous White toothpaste for adults….I drink a lot of coffee and love having a toothpaste that helps me keep my teeth white. 🙂
My daughter is now at the age where she needs a little bit of odor protection, especially on days when she has PE at school. I found Tom’s of Maine Wicked Cool antiperspirant when I was looking for a product that contains no aluminum or artificial fragrances, and this one fits the bill! She loves the Summer Fun scent. It kind of matches the smell of her favorite bubble gum! 🙂
I told my sister about it and she recently picked up the boy’s “freestyle” scent…she said my nephew uses it every day.
Natural Products from Tom’s of Maine
Tom’s has a few products in this collection to choose from:
Luminous White Toothpaste: Their most advanced natural whitening toothpaste that is safe for enamel, and is gluten and paraben free. You will be able to find it in the toothpaste aisle – at my Target, it’s smack center in the middle of the toothpaste shelf:
Wicked Cool! Antipersirant: Shown above, this is the 1st natural deodorant line made just for boys and girls, providing 24-hour odor protection and free of aluminum, parabens and artificial fragrances. Both the boy and girl lines smell good, and were approved by my kids and my nephew. Getting all the kids to agree on something, that’s a pretty big achievement.
North Woods Men’s Antiperspirant: Their first natural antiperspirant made for men that provides all day odor and wetness protection without petrochemicals, artificial fragrances or irritation. I’m not kidding when I say this one was by far my favorite scent.
At least for me, the North Woods scent hit a certain extra sense and gives me a feeling of nostalgia. The same one you get when you smell a pine cone scented candle or honey suckle in the air. It reminded me of playing the forest as a kid.
I found the Wicked Cool! antiperspirant for boys and the men’s antiperspirant right next to each other in the store. You really can’t miss them:
Don’t forget, since this is only available at Target, to activate the cartwheel offer in the app before heading to the store and show your Cartwheel bar code to the cashier during checkout.
A Company Protecting Our Earth
My family recently attended an Earth Day celebration thrown by the town. The kids loved it. They brought home vegetable plants, trees, wood necklaces and seed packets. We’ve had fun planting them and they were happy to get dirty. When I use natural and sustainable products I feel like I’m doing a little something to keep my family and our Earth healthy.
Really, I just love the outdoors in general. Give me a field and some big trees and I can spend a whole day doing anything in it. Cartwheels, cloud watching, making grass bracelets or just running after the kids! I try to bring the outdoors inside as well and have several plants and trees in our home. I feel like I can breathe deeper when I’m surrounded by nature.
Tom’s of Maine believes in being a good steward of our environment. The company was founded on the belief that “both human beings and nature have inherent worth and deserve our respect”. They even have a goal of achieving ZERO WASTE by the year 2020!
I’m so glad there are companies out there like Tom’s of Maine who are concerned about the environment and taking steps to ensure a healthier future for my children, and I am glad to give them my business!
