As many of you know, last year I was invited to work with Tom’s of Maine as a brand ambassador in their Goodness Circle. It was a great partnership and an incredible experience. Throughout the year I had an opportunity to get to know the company and many of their products ranging from toothpaste to lip balm and share my experiences with you.
I have some exciting news to share for this year~ Once again, I’ll be partnering with Tom’s of Maine as a member of their Goodness Circle!
My family’s been using Tom’s of Maine for many years so this partnership feels very natural. When my kids were little we had a tough time finding a toothpaste that they liked. We went through tube after tube of toothpaste, looking for a winner. Most flavors made them scrunch up their little faces and say “ewww”. Tom’s of Maine Silly Strawberry saved the day and they still use it many years later.
What is the Tom’s of Maine Goodness Circle?
The Goodness Circle is a group of passionate and enthusiastic bloggers who share a passion for writing about healthy living. Last year I had an opportunity to head to Maine for a Tom’s of Maine luncheon with many of the bloggers involved in the Goodness Circle and the Tom’s of Maine team. It was so nice to finally put names with many of the faces I’d been in touch with over the year.
Why I Love Tom’s of Maine
Tom’s of Maine is headquartered in one of my favorite states- Maine! Their offices are only about an hour from my office so hopefully I’ll have an opportunity to hop in the car to visit their new offices.
My philosophy has always been to support companies doing good things. While this company is not perfect (what company is?!), they have amazing initiatives in place and they’re taking so many steps in the right direction.
This sounds like my kind of company. Their site says:
“We are a company of kayakers and campers, hikers and mountain bikers and parents who poke around in tidal pools and take walks in the forest with our kids.
That’s why caring for the environment is something we’ve focused on since 1970. This value comes to life in the way we select ingredients, our manufacturing practices at our Sanford, Maine plant, and the packaging we use.”
If you’re interested in hearing more about some of the ways they’re making a difference our world check out their Goodness Report.
My Favorite Tom’s of Maine Products
My personal favorite Tom’s of Maine product is the Tom’s of Maine Long Lasting Deodorant. Finally a safer deodorant that actually works. I love the natural powder scent. I’ve been using this brand for years and there are no artificial colors, or fragrances or preservatives. Tom’s of Maine products are simple to find at many retailers and come in a variety of mild fragrances.
