Giveaway & Review: If You Care Environmentally Friendly Products {CLOSED}

If You Care is a company that produces environmentally friendly products. All of their products are made from sustainable, renewable or recyclable resources. If You Care uses only vegetable-based inks for printing, non-toxic glues, landfill safe and biodegradable paper products, and packaging materials made from recycled paper. They also utilize 100% unbleached paper products which help reduce the amount of toxins in our lakes and streams and 100% recycled aluminum foil which can be used over and over again.

I received a set of If You Care products for review, including FSC Certified Parchment Baking Paper, which is made of premium quality unbleached totally chlorine-free (TCF) greaseproof paper and coated in natural silicone. This parchment paper is microwave and oven safe up to 428 degrees. They also offer pre-cut Parchment Baking Sheets for convenience, which makes baking even easier!

Another item that I tested for review was the If You Care 100% Recycled Aluminum Foil. This item can be recycled again and again. Plus it only takes 5% of the energy to produce recycled aluminum foil compared with regular aluminum foil. This product, though it's recycled, performs equally well to traditional aluminum foil. The Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil is even better in quality and also 100% recycled. It is thicker and stronger which makes it perfect for the grill or oven.

My favorite item in the If You Care line are the baking cups. There are Jumbo, Large and Mini size baking cups, which are all made of unbleached TCF greaseproof paper and don't require any greasing. I made birthday cupcakes using both the Large and Mini baking cups. I didn't have an actual mini cupcake pan, but as specified on the box, these cups can be used with or without a cupcake tin. The mini and regular size cupcakes turned out great! It is really nice to know that I'm using a product that's environmentally friendly and recyclable.

For those of you with children, If You Care offers unbleached paper sandwich and snack bags to take the place of standard sandwich bags. These paper bags are made of unbleached greaseproof paper, are produced with 100% renewable resources, and have unique barrier properties to naturally prevent grease or fat from penetrating. These are perfect for school lunches, snacks, and more.


There are so many products in the If You Care line, whether you're looking for baking products, fire starters, food packaging, coffee filters, or even household gloves for dishes/cleaning/etc. You can help protect the environment, just by choosing environmentally-friendly products made by companies like If You Care.

I always make sure to use a metal water bottle and not use new plastic ones over and over. ;)

One thing that we do as a family is that we have a container in our kitchen just for recyclables. When we have something to recycle we put it in there and then when it's full we transfer it to the big recycle can outside to be picked up once a week.
