Products were provided to me by Tom’s of Maine, but my opinions are my own.
August is always a hard month financially for us. Three kids going back to school who need new clothes, shoes, supplies, and the school fees that seem to be never ending. $60 for a yearbook? $45 a year for my freshman to have a mandatory classroom chromebook? Don’t forget the fall sports signups and new gear. I can’t imagine how difficult it must be for families who really can’t afford it all. Every child deserves to have a smile on their face the first day and not be stressed that they don’t have everything they need. This year back to school is better with Tom’s of Maine because they are here to help.
Tom’s of Maine has teamed up with The Kids in Need Foundation (KINF) to donate 10,000 Backpacks Full of Good to students most in need, nationwide. The backpacks that are being donated through the partnership with KINF are full of essential school supplies that kids need the most!
To continue their efforts, Tom’s of Maine provided my family with backpacks they created specifically for us filled with eco-conscious items – including Fluoride-Free Silly Strawberry. Not only will these items set my kids up for success but it will also help their oral care all year long.
Check out these fun green items inside an Ecogear backpack:
Origin glass water bottle to keep them hydrated throughout the day.
ECOlunchbox to reuse again and again.
Honeysticks crayons made with 100% beeswax.
Onyx + Green glue sticks that are plant based and non-toxic.
Blue Q pencil case made from recycled materials.
Tom’s of Maine Children’s Soft Toothbrush to encourage healthy dental habits.
Tom’s of Maine Fluoride-Free Silly Strawberry which is P’Diddy’s favorite!
If we run out then you should hear the complaints! Mint flavored will just not do. It has to be Silly Strawberry for him!! See why my whole family choses Tom’s of Maine toothpaste.
It should be noted that Backpacks for Good is just one example of how Tom’s of Maine supports communities across the country. Every year, Tom’s of Maine gives 10% of its profits back to helping people and the planet and employees are encouraged to give 5% of paid time to volunteer.
How is the back to school season going at your house?
