How to clean up your personal care products and help clean waterways, too has been brought to you by Tom’s of Maine and Mambo Sprouts. All opinions are mine.
I have fond memories of going to ponds, lakes, and rivers with my family. There is just something about the water that creates a peaceful, calming effect. I am especially reminiscent of the croaking frogs, the cicadas in the summertime, and the exciting “plop!” that fish make when jumping in the water or eating a bug floating on the water.
Now that our boys are all old enough to enjoy camping and going to lakes and rivers, we make it a point to schedule visits to bodies of water whenever we can. I want them to experience the same feelings I did as a kid. Just being able to look out over the water and experience the calm and wonder in its natural state.
