Happy Earth Day! This earth is a true miracle that provides us with everything we need. From the beauty and majesty of God's creation flows an abundance of natural resources and necessities to take care of us. But it is also our duty to take care of it as well. To celebrate Earth Day I am collaborating with a brand that does just that. Tom's of Maine believes that:
Every ingredient and package we use should be a reflection of our commitment to you, our communities and our planet.
I love that Tom's of Maine has a stewardship model that respects and takes care of the earth while providing natural, affordable options for families.

Why Should You Choose Natural Personal Care Products?
If you've been following me for a while now, you probably know the answer to this. Conventional personal care products contain an endless concoction of chemicals that have been linked to cancer, hormone disruption and all kinds of other nasty stuff.
Very little is done to test or regulate the ingredients that go into these products. So every day without knowing it we are slathering countless chemicals all over our bodies and that are being absorbed right into the bloodstream.
Not only us, but our children as well. Between toxic ingredients in body wash, shampoo, soaps, toothpaste and deodorants, our children are being exposed to hundreds of chemicals.
So what can you do?
Thankfully there are companies who are diligent about creating safe, natural products for our families.
Introducing Tom's of Maine Made to Matter Collection now available at Target.
This Got Me Really Excited! 1st Natural Deodorant for Kids!
So I have to tell you that I was most excited about trying the Wicked Cool Deodorant. This is their 1st natural deodorant made specifically for boys and girls.
Not only is it free of aluminum, parabens and artificial fragrances it also offers 24 hour odor protection! With 2 teenage boys in the house, this is a win win.
As hard as I try to only use natural products, it can be a struggle with teenagers who have a mind of their own. So I was super excited to try this deodorant for kids!
There are two options for kids including the Freestyle for boys and Summer Fun for girls. I grabbed 2 of the Freestyle, one for each of my boys.
I love that this deodorant still has a fresh, natural scent. It wasn't much of a fight to get the boys to try it and the 24 hour protection is a plus… Especially with baseball season in full swing.
