Just recently my family made some important lifestyle changes. Not only were my husband and I looking to lead a more healthy and active lifestyle, but we knew by making these changes it would ensure our kids would eat more healthy as well. With the change came adding more organic foods and adding more sustainable products into our home. We love the idea of knowing what exactly is in the products we are cleaning our home with, it gives a little peace of mind, especially while having children.
Finding products and foods that fit into the lifestyle change hasn’t been easy for us as the places near us offer limited selection of products. However, the stress of finding the products and foods we have been looking for has been put to ease thanks to Target.

Made to Matter offers many products in the Baby, Beauty, Grocery, and Household categories. These items include Annie’s, Method, Seventh Generation, HappyBaby, Justin’s and more.

I love knowing that I can head to my local Target and get everything I need from food to household products. It shows that Target puts the same thought and care that I do into my family’s well being. Plus, I can now shop just in one place without having to run around town. Talk about a time saver!

With the excitement of this news I wanted to share some simple ways for your family to live a more healthy, organic and green lifestyle.

1. Swap regular produce and meats for organic.

2. Plant an herb garden with your children. Not only is this a fun activity to do together as a family but it’s also a good reminder of where our food originates. Ecoscraps is a great organic soil to use and one of the brands in Made to Matter.

3. Look for products that contain no GMOs, especially when feeding your baby.  Ella’s Kitchen, Plum Organics and HappyBaby are great choices that are also affordable and many are organic. You can find them as part of Made to Matter at Target.

4. Opt for cleaning products with better ingredients and that are biodegradable like Method, Seventh Generation and Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day products. Whether I am washing dishes, washing clothes, or just cleaning dust and grime from my house, I feel better knowing I am making better choices for my family by using products that are gentle, yet tough enough to fight the dirt. You can also find these products as part of Made to Matter at Target.

5. Give up bottled water. There are so many wonderful choices for reusable water bottles that there really is something for every person in your family. If you are concerned over your tap water, Target sells the Soma Water Filter Carafe which is an excellent addition to your home. Not only does it have a wonderful modern design, but the filter is made of coconut shell carbon and plant-based casing that removes chlorine while making water taste pure and delicious.

Whatever stage you’re in – whether you are looking to make just the smallest switch to a greener lifestyle, or you’re already living green and need a more convenient place to purchase — Target can help. Discover more at
