If You Care Enviroment Friendly Baking Products Giveaway / Review $25 Value

I don't know about you all...but my Holiday Baking is in full swing right now.  I am so busy making carmels, toffee, cookies, peanut brittle and the list goes on and on.

Every year I go through an amazing amount of baking supplies and have never given a thought to the items I have used and how it may have effected our fragile environment.

But this year, or should I say this last month my thought process has changed thanks to finding an amazing Environment Friendly Product Company called....



"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."

If You Care sent me out a beautiful and Environment Friendly selection of baking supplies, including an awesome t-shirt to sample, review and is going to provide a Giveaway of a Wonderful Prize Pack to one Lucky Bloggy Friend. 

I want to start by sharing the moment my If You Care products arrived, I was pleased as I could feel the difference in the items.  They each felt sturdy and capable of holding up through all my kitchen adventures.  All the packaging of the items received were even Environmental Friendly (How Cool is That!!)

The If You Care Parchment Baking Paper is Amazing!  It has held up to my Toffee making this Holiday Season perfectly.  If You Care Parchment Paper uses Silicone, derived from a natural element to help prevent items from sticking.  But perhaps most importantly, If You Care baking papers use NO chlorine in their production. And that means NO chlorine is dumped into our lakes and streams.  It is also Microwave and Oven Safe to 428 degrees.
If You Care also makes Large Baking Cups which are the most beautiful Natural Brown Color.  I LOVE these cups.  They hold up to even the heaviest of batters.  If You Care Baking Cups use premium quality unbleached greaseproof paper.  So you don't even have to spray your baking cups before using...your baked goods will come right out perfectly!  NO chlorine is used in their production...Which means no chlorine is dumped into our lakes, rivers and streams. 

100% Recycled Aluminum Foil!  Thank you If You Care for finding the perfect use for used Aluminum Foil. While traditional foil manufacturing is a power-intensive process, If You Care uses 95% less energy to produce. Because there is no need to mine, If You Care production creates less waste, while reusing a precious resource. If You Care 100% Recycled Aluminum Foil can be recycled again, providing your local recycling center accepts aluminum foil.*

If You Care 100% Unbleached Paper Snack and Sandwich Bags.  These bags are made in Sweden from 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 If You Care paper products, these snack and sandwich bags are totally chlorine-free!  My boys LOVE to take these in their lunch boxes to school.  They work perfectly and my boys think they are special as each bag is unique from the "typical" zippy bags others use (hopefully we can change that fact very soon). 

I have never heard of Sponge Cloths before, until If You Care sent a package.  They are 100% Natural.  Each cloth is extremely porous, which makes the sponge cloth extraordinarily absorbent. It can absorb up to 20 times its own weight in water.  The sponge cloths are extremely durable, tear and abrasion resistant.  They are reusable over and over again, and check this out!!! They can be machine washed in water up to 1900F (880C), up to 300 times!  Perfect is all I can say!

And my T-shirt is wonderful!  Thank you If You Care for caring about all of us and our fragile environment!  You do truly make a difference....and now I do as I will be purchasing more If You Care.

  52. I've used their baking cups (in fact, I need to add that to my list for the store!). They are great! They release the cupcakes easily, so you don't end up with half the cake still in the paper. Plus, you can toss the used ones right into the compost!
    This is the first time I've seen their household gloves and sponges, though. I'm going to be on the lookout for them at the store!
