One of the joys of what I do is sharing brands with you that really rock. It’s not just because I want you to buy another this or that, it’s because in a sea of people that just want your money it’s totally awesome to find products that truly make a difference.
Last week, I shared with you life hacks using floss that don’t involve teeth to tell you about the awesome partnership with Tom’s of Maine! I think they rock, and obviously Target does too! Target has this super cool awesome program called Made to Matter. What the heck is that? It’s a selection of products carried only at Target stores. They only pick 20 products that meet all of these requirements.
- Reduced Waste and Packaging
- Closed Loop System: This means excess of one product is used to make another product
- Clean Label Products: Made without additives and harsh chemicals
- Dietary and Allergen Restrictions: Accomodoate specialized diets and food allergies.
- Reduced Sugar
Tom’s of Maine is super duper happy to be a part of the Target Made to Matter campaign. It makes me love them even more because I’m all about reduced waste! Check out how you can learn to declutter your home as part of their Waste Less Challenge. Plus, since my health has gone all haywire, I really have to be careful about what is in the personal and home care products that I use.
We’ve been reading ingredient labels ever since Bayla was a baby due to food allergies. You really think you have a handle on that until it’s you that has weird reactions. Tom’s of Maine products are great for people with sensitivities! They are a brand that also loves to give their consumers choices!
Our family personally tries to avoid aluminum in deodorant and flouride in toothpaste, and one great thing about Tom’s of Maine is that they offer products with and without. That means my family can make the choices we want to make, and if you don’t happen to feel the same way you can still get great products made with fluoride and aluminum.
For the Target Made to Matter program, Tom’s of Maine has developed some products that are only available at Target stores. Just another reason to love Target even more. Tom’s of Maine has these great products in the Made to Matter program.
Luminous White Toothpaste: An all natural way to whiten your teeth. It’s a fluoride anti-cavity toothpaste that whitens without artificial colors, flavors, fragrances or preservatives!
Wicked Cool 24 Odor Protection for Girls (Summer Fun): This great deodorant is great for tweens and teens. It was our family’s favorite products. Having two teen girls, I feel great giving this to them because it is free of aluminum, parabens, and artificial fragrances!
Wicked Cool 24 Odor Protection for Boys (Freestyle): This one got two thumbs up from the boy child. We are still field testing to see if it can handle even the stinkiest teen boy odors.
Naturally Dry Antiperspirant Deodorant for Men (North Woods): My husband has had the hardest time finding an antiperspirant that works for him. We were really excited to try this brand, and think we’ve found a winner for him to switch too!

These aren’t just promise on a package, they are actually what Tom’s of Maine stands for. Last year at BlogHer, I had a chance to chat with them at length about this, and that is why I was so excited to be a part of the Tom’s of Maine Goodness Circle. They are one of my absolute favorite brands, and hope they can make your life rock as much as they do for our family!
