“We wanted to find a memorable way to introduce Simply White and celebrate natural beauty,” said Ellen Saksen, Oral Care Associate Brand Manager at Tom’s of Maine. “Sheryl Crow is an American icon who shares our passion for the environment and healthy living. As we take Simply White on tour, we hope people will join us on the ground to bring back natural beauty and think about ways they can take care of their own natural beauty.”

Bringing Back Natural Beauty with Simply White

Now available nationwide, Simply White toothpaste is clinically proven to whiten teeth and contains no bleaching ingredients. It provides whitening, cavity protection and fresh breath all in one and combines naturally sourced silicas to gently remove surface stains. As with all Tom’s of Maine products, there are no artificial flavors or preservatives and no animal testing or animal ingredients.

Greening Crow’s “100 Miles From Memphis” Tour

Through support from Tom’s of Maine and Reverb, the music industry’s leading environmental organization, Sheryl Crow’s spring tour will feature sustainability changes such as biodiesel fuel, recycling bins at concert venues and a commitment to natural cleaning products, local and organic catering and reusable/biodegradable hospitality products, among other initiatives. At her tour venues, concertgoers can visit Tom’s of Maine at the on-site Eco-Village to learn more and to receive a free sample of Simply White toothpaste while supplies last.
