Earth Day is Friday, April 22nd. Like other natural-living-minded moms, I’m spending time this week talking with my boys about how we can do our part to help the environment.
- We’ve talked about our use of water and electricity and how we can reduce both.
- We’ve discussed our impact on the environment when we travel in gas-powered vehicles and ways that we can reduce the time we spend driving.
- We’ve gone over the importance of organic gardening both from an environmental perspective and for our own personal wellness.
- We had conversations about how our family contributes to helping the environment through being conscious of the personal care products we use and by supporting companies who care about the environment like we do.
Made to Matter Personal Care Products at Target
As you guys know, my boys are tweens and teens. My teenager is really into personal care and hygiene; my almost-teenager doesn’t fight getting fresh and clean but has to be reminded; and my tween . . . well, let’s just say he’s into an all-natural lifestyle at this point in his life.
As the weather gets warmer, I become more vigilant about reminding my free-spirited sons about personal hygiene. If I don’t double check that they’ve actually applied deodorant before leaving the house, my van smells like I’m transporting monkeys instead of children.
Because our family practices natural living, we care about what’s in the products we use. That’s why I love the Tom’s of Main Wicked Cool! deodorant for boys, which is part of the Made to Matter collection at Target. With the Made to Matter Collection, Target has partnered with 20 companies who are on the leading edge of the environmentally-friendly, natural-living lifestyle. Tom’s of Maine is of these companies who helps to support families like ours who put a priority on green living, not only on Earth Day, but all year around.
Tom’s of Maine Wicked Cool! Deodorant
As most parents know, when you want your kids to do something they don’t consider important making it fun tends to encourage them to participate. That’s one of the reasons that my boys and I love Tom’s of Main Wicked Cool! Deodorant.
I love it because it’s free of parabens, aluminium, artificial dyes and fragrances. In addition, it’s never tested on animals. The Wicked Cool! deodorants for boys and girls are perfect for first-time deodorant users. I’ve been a long-time user of Tom’s of Maine products, as well. I love that Tom’s of Maine has cared about community and environment for over 45 years.
My boys love it because the packaging is cool and it smells great. It also helps that it’s specifically labeled as ‘deodorant for boys’. It makes my boys feel like it’s something just for them instead of boring personal care product that I’m making them use. They get to use a fun product and I’m happy because the product meets my standards of earth-friendly natural living.
