I always advocate for using reusable products whenever possible, but there are always going to be times when it won’t. That is when having an eco-friendly alternative will be important. If You Care is a great company that strives for both eco-excellence and products that will work, carrying the most comprehensive line of paper and household products that have the least impact on the environment.
The materials we use are specially chosen to reduce their impact on our environment. We use unbleached paper, recycled materials and wood and paper coming from sustainably managed forests. We replace petroleum based ingredients with natural and renewable resources. We use paper from pulp and paper mills practicing the highest levels of clean water management. Every care is taken to ensure that each step– from factory to store shelf – conforms to strict standards for the conservation and protection of our greatest asset – the environment.
The cost difference between conventional products and eco-friendly ones is much less now than it ever has been. We have seen environmentally friendly sales during back to school on the rise since years past. Consumers are beginning to recognize the impact their choices are for environmental health and their family’s well-being.
The very first product were the first FSC certified coffee filters and are still one of If You Care’s best selling products to date. The 100% recycled aluminum foil uses 5% of the energy it takes to produce conventional aluminum foil, can be recycled again and again, and performs just as well. This makes me happy.
It also makes me happy that they have all sorts of suggestions to use their products in a more innovative way. Most of which come from customers.
I was recently sent a box of some of the extensive line of environmentally friendly products to try. Every product is designed to create a minimal amount of waste, from the packaging to after use. The packaging is chlorine-free, recycled cardboard that can be recycled again.
The products are all:
- unbleached, totally chlorine-free.
- toxin free.
- Star-K kosher.
- gluten and allergen free.
- suitable for vegetarians/vegans.
So, we took a few of these fabulous eco-friendly products and had a good time making a mess and making memories.
