If You Care
Environment Friendly Products
About: If You Care kitchen and household products are carefully and deliberately crafted to have the least environmental impact and the lightest carbon footprint possible, while at the same time, delivering to the consumer, the highest quality and most effective results.
There has been a lot of focus lately on bringing your own reusable bags to use at the grocery store. I’m happy to see that stores expect and encourage people to bring their own bags. This is fantastic. There is, however, a lot more that we can do to take better care of our planet.
There are little things that we use everyday that may not seem like much. It’s only a sandwich bag. It’s just a piece of foil. It’s only a coffee filter …. All of these little things add up to big trouble for the earth and your home environment.
Should I wrap my child’s sandwich in a petroleum based product?
Should I run my coffee through a filter that’s been treated with bleach?
Should I put my biodegradable yard waste in a non-biodegradable petroleum based trash bag?
Should I damage the earth/air/sky when I prepare a meal or pack a lunch?
If You Care products are an easy way to take control of your own personal environmental impact. They pay attention to the details every step of the way – from the raw materials themselves to the processing methods, packaging and transportation. Products are made from recycled materials, unbleached paper, natural and renewable resources.
If You Care has:
- Aluminum Foil – 100% recycled, uses 95% less energy to produce than traditional foil
- Waxed Paper - 100% unbleached, 100% soybean wax
- Sandwich/Snack Bags – unbleached, chlorine free, 100% renewable resources
- Coffee Filters – chlorine free, paper from FSC certified forests
- Parchment Paper – unbleached, chlorine free
- Baking Cups – unbleached, greaseproof, chlorine free
- Twine - all natural, no chlorine, non toxic, biodegradable
- Cheesecloth – unbleached, non toxic, biodegradable, reusable
- and more!
The quality of the products that I used is excellent. You don’t have to sacrifice quality when using an environmentally responsible product. The recycled foil and paper products function as well as non-eco friendly products.
These are all products that are easy to work into your normal routine.
The prices? Excellent!! I can purchase eco-friendly If You Care products for about the same as other products. Many of the prices are even lower than regular name brands at my local grocery store.
WHERE TO BUY - If You Care products are available online and at retail stores including Whole Foods.
PRIZE - If You Care would like to give a prize package to **2** of you – baking cups, parchment paper, waxed paper, sandwich bags (ARV $25)
