We spend a lot of time outdoors, as an active family we enjoy spending time together doing things. My husband is the inspiration for many of these trips and he always manages to teach our girls something new and to have fun along the way. We want to teach our girls to love the planet and take care of it, we also want them to leave the world a better place.
With Earth Day just passing we are being extra aware about our environmental impact and rededicating ourselves to being more healthy and it’s important to us that we live a more sustainable lifestyle. One of the stores we like to shop at is Target, we can get everything from groceries to personal items. Target’s new Made to Matter Collection includes one of our favorite brads, Tom’s of Maine. All of the Made to Matter Collection products are free of artificial dyes, fragrances, flavors and preservatives, and are never tested on animals so you can feel good using them with your family. The Made to Matter Collection is exclusive to Target so you can only find these Tom’s of Maine products in their store. Of course I also stocked up on our other favorite Tom’s of Maine products as well while we were there.
The Tom’s of Maine Made to Matter Collection consists of the Luminous WhiteToothpaste. This toothpaste is their most advanced natural whitening toothpaste and is safe for enamel, and is gluten and paraben free.
A new pick that I will easily be stocking for my husband is the North Woods Men’s Antiperspirant. This is Tom’s of Maine’s first natural antiperspirant made for men that provides all day odor and wetness protection without petrochemicals, artificial fragrances, or irritation. It’s nice to know I can find products the are also safe and healthy for him so we can all spend more time together making memories. Also for new and just for kids is the Wicked Cool! deodorant, a must for our tween! As we head into the warmer months of the year it’s more important that ever to think about ways your family might have an environmental impact. How can you save water? What changes can you make to eat more plant based foods? How can we reduce the amount of chemicals we put back into the waterways and landfills?
These are all questions we ask ourselves and we really try to teach our children each and every day that little things do matter. Start simple things like planting a garden, recycling, saving water, and even starting a compost bin for your new garden.
One of the best things about shopping at Target is all of the great Cartwheel offers. Be sure to check out the cartwheel offer going on now.
What ways are some ways that your family trying to live more sustainably?
