If You Care Environmentally Friendly Products Review and Giveaway

Lately, I have felt re-motivated to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle. Sometimes that means taking the harder road, which is why I wrote last week, "It's Not Easy Being Green." That is why I really appreciate companies like If You Care, who work to make green living just a bit easier.

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. Read more about how environmentally friendly they are!

They offer many different household products, from baking cups to aluminum foil to household gloves.
One of my favorite products is their snack/sandwich bags. Besides being totally chlorine free, they are not chemically treated and made from 100% renewable resources like the Scandinavian Spruce trees. They are the perfect replacement for petroleum based plastic bags that most of us use.

As you can see below, a sandwich fits perfectly inside of the bag. In fact, there is plenty of room to roll up the edge and keep crumbs inside. You can use these bags for anything that you would like to include with your lunch or snacks. With school starting soon, these would be perfect for kid's lunches. Think about how many less plastic bags would be filling our landfills if we all just made this one little switch over to these bags.


I also really love their 100% Recycled Aluminum Foil. If You Care uses 95% less energy to produce this aluminum foil than is normally used by other manufacturers. Now, that makes a difference! Check out the lifecycle of this aluminum foil below.
 
Lifecycle of IYC Aluminum Foil
 
The other day, I made delicious zucchini bread and used this recycled aluminum foil to wrap it in. I loved it! It was just as strong as regular aluminum foil and worked great.
 

If you love to bake like me, you will also love their baking cups. They come in three different sizes, and they are perfect for cupcakes or muffins.
                                          
You can find these products and all their others on their website. Order them online or find them at Whole Foods. Once you try them, I know you will fall in love with them as I have, and you will never go back! Why choose icky chemical products when you can have recycled, unbleached, safe and great quality products from If You Care?

Great news! We are giving away a baking set to (1) lucky winner, which will include the baking cups, parchment paper roll and an If You Care t-shirt. (available in sizes M, L and XL)
