Hey, here's a simple contest - Leave a comment about this blog post describing your most memorable Wicked Fresh moment and you might win a gift card. Read on to find out what it's all about...
Recently, it's been common for companies to market their concern for and effort to protect, preserve, and restore the environment. It seems everyone is 'going green', often in an effort to earn more business without a real commitment to the cause. But, there are a few companies that have had environmental stewardship as part of their corporate ideology from the start.
Tom's of Maine has been around since 1970 and are celebrating 40 years of offering wicked fresh products and supporting the planet at the same time. This isn't just a token support either. They do no animal testing. They use no artificial colors, flavors, fragrance, or preservatives. They use recycled content in packaging. And, quite impressively, they commit 12 days of each employee's workyear to volunteer efforts, as well as give 10% of profits to human and environmental goodness. Show me another company like this one. They even list all their ingredients and what they do on their website.
The corporate philosophy at Tom's of Maine is a key reason why I support them. Another is that I believe they have good products. Their Wicked Fresh! toothpaste works great, and is all-natural and long-lasting. It fights cavities and uses natural oils for flavor. A special, natural extract extends the breath freshening to last hours.
Follow up a brushing with Tom's non-alcoholic Wicked Fresh! mouthwash and you're good to go. I like that there's no alcohol in the mouthwash and the cool mint gives a nice kick. These are still 'smellables' so they go in the bearbag at night, but there's just something that feels right about using all-natural products when out in nature, don't you think?
Even my wife, who's been a staunch Colgate user forever is sold on the Wicked Fresh! toothpaste and mouthwash.
Tom's is using the Wicked Fresh! tagline for a great contest that you should take a minute to enter. It's a fun way for Tom's to give back as they spread the word. Just visit the That's Wicked Fresh contest page and tweet a wicked fresh moment you've had.
For me, my wicked fresh moment this year was standing on the 13,000 foot summit of Cloud Peak in Wyoming with my youngest son on a clear blue, cloudless day. The air was crisp and we could see the entire world from up there!
Go tell Tom's about your wicked fresh moment and you might win a $500 Target gift card or other cool, fresh prizes.
If you Follow @TomsofMaine on Twitter or Like them on Facebook you get additional chances to win in their contest. I've noticed Tom's folks are very active on both Twitter and Facebook, posting and responding to others' posts and tweets.
