For as long as I can remember I have been trying to use products that are better environmentally. I have bottles upon bottles in our cupboards for water and juices, snack sized plastic containers for work/school snacks and we also make sure to recycle. Until recently I had never paid that much attention how much further I could take it by using kitchen and household products that are good for the environment too.
I found a wonderful company that offers a wide range of kitchen and household products that are better for the environment and I am so happy that I found them. If You Care carries a wide range of products for your baking, cooking and household needs. Paper Cake/Pie, loaf pans, recycled aluminum foils, coffee filters, household gloves, trash bags and waxed paper is the tip of the iceberg of all of the products that they have to offer. 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. All If You Care paper products are unbleached and totally chlorine free. Since no chlorine is used for bleaching, no chlorine is dumped into our lakes, rivers and streams
If You Care products are produced with a view to reducing the amount of waste in our waste streams. If possible, nothing should remain after the product has been used and properly disposed of. The packaging of every product is made from unbleached and whenever possible, recycled cardboard or paper which should be recycled again. The coffee filters, parchment paper, baking cups, waxed paper and sandwich bags are 100% biodegradable and should be composted. The aluminum foil is made from recycled aluminum and can be recycled again.
I received a great package full of If You Care products and they even included a t-shirt for me to wear! I have used all of the products and love knowing that I have taken one more step in reducing my family’s carbon footprint on the world. I found the quality of all of the products that I tested to be as good, if not better than other products I have used in the past that are not so good for the environment. I tested out the baking cups by making my cupcakes and they were perfectly yummy!! Below are the products that I was lucky enough to test out and I have provided the info for each of them.
Made inSwedenfrom the unbleached pulp of Scandinavian spruce trees – a natural, renewable resource – If You Care Snack and Sandwich Bags are greaseproof, and provide a natural barrier which prevents grease or fat from penetrating. They are not treated with petroleum based paraffin wax or any other wax. Like all of our If You Care paper products, these snack and sandwich bags are totally chlorine-free, as a result of which, no chlorine is dumped into our lakes, rivers and streams. Perfect for snacks, cookies, muffins, nuts, chips, sandwiches and much more.
These premium quality FSC certified unbleached, greaseproof papers are perfect for a wide variety of baking and cooking needs. While some baking papers are coated with Quilon, which contains heavy metals like chromium that can be toxic when incinerated, If You Care Parchment Paper uses Silicone, derived from a natural element. It’s a much more expensive process, but one we feel is worth it for everyone. But perhaps most importantly, our baking papers use no chlorine in their production. And that means no chlorine is dumped into our lakes and streams.
If You Care 100% Natural Sponge Cloths are made in a patented process from a three dimensional blending of cellulose, non-GMO umbleached cotton and mirabilite – a natural mineral salt. During the production process, the mirabilite is washed out, leaving the remaining blend (70% cellulose & 30% cotton) extremely porous, which makes the sponge cloth extraordinarily absorbent. It can absorb up to 20 times its own weight in water.
Made from the same material as our FSC certified parchment papers, If You Care FSC Certified Baking Cups use premium quality unbleached greaseproof paper. Our baking cups use no chlorine in their production. And that means no chlorine is dumped into our lakes, rivers and streams. Available in three sizes – Mini (90 cups; 1.625in/4.14cm), Large (60 cups; 2.5in/6.35cm), and Jumbo (24 cups; 3.5in/8.89cm)
