“Our guests are looking for products they can feel good bringing home without sacrificing price and performance,” said Kathee Tesija, evp/merchandising and supply chain at Target. “We’re taking the guesswork out of buying better-for-you products by bringing together 17 trusted brands.”

The Made to Matter collection includes all products currently offered at Target by the participating brands and at least one new exclusive item from each brand.

There will be more than 120 new and limited-time exclusive Made to Matter products, according to Target. They range from first-to-market product designs and innovations to new scent and flavor options. Products will be available throughout the store, both in the products’ usual aisles and as part of specialized collection displays. Select products also will be available on Target.com and Target’s mobile app. First introduced in Target stores at the end of March, new Made to Matter products will be added throughout spring and summer, with the complete collection available by September 2014.
