If you ever feel like there’s just not enough natural products to make the world a better place – well, you’re somewhat right. But more and more companies are coming out with every day products that are not only safer for you but for the planet as well. You just have to know where to look and to understand their overall goal. Unfortunately if you don’t shop at a natural grocery store regularly, then you might miss out on some really great natural products that have either been in the industry for many years or are just starting out. One company who makes amazing household products using naturally derived ingredients is aptly named, If You Care (http://ifyoucare.com/). They make a great assortment of products to use throughout the home that you’ll wonder why you never discovered them before. And that’s because If You Care is a fairly new company, having launched their first product in the market just over 20 years ago.
If You Care began producing their first product, unbleached coffee filters, which was also the very first unbleached coffee filters to market in the United States. Later the need for more environmentally-friendly products to be available gave If You Care the opportunity to produce other environmentally safe products including Dish Liquid, Household Gloves, Trash Bags, Sponge Cloths, Laundry Detergent, and their 100% Recycled Aluminum which uses 95% less energy to produce than any other aluminum foils out on the market today. With the sole purpose of making products that will leave less environmental impact and with the lightest carbon footprint possible, If You Care has dedicated themselves in making products that you will be proud to use every day.
If you look through their array of useful and innovative products, you’ll find products that not only help you get your job done, but can be easily recycled, reused, and repurposed. With their products certified from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and not made with anything toxic or potentially harmful to the environment, it’s easy to see why their products are a natural choice for those who want healthier and better products. I’m excited that they carry such an extensive line of goodies for your home that it’s almost safe to say that you’ll find everything you need from dishwashing detergent to baking pans to natural firelighters. And all of If You Care’s products are made from recycled materials including their packaging, they do not contain chlorine or anything potentially toxic, and from only biodegradable substances. And their Household Gloves for instance are made from 100% renewable resources and are dyed with biodegradable non-toxic inks and glues.
The good folks at If You Care had wanted me to try their most popular Household Gloves/Dish Gloves and Sponge Clothes. As mentioned above, their Household Gloves are made from renewable resources and are non-toxic and their Sponge Clothes are also made from 100% renewable resources and can be used over and over again as well as being super absorbent and resilient. I really like the fact that you can wash the sponge clothes in the washing machine and it actually stayed pretty true to shape after a couple of washes. And if you look at how thin the cloth is, you wonder if it’ll actually soak anything up, and yes indeed – it cleaned and washed my dishes very well as well as served its purpose in cleaning the kitchen countertops. I’m sure there are many other uses for it, I just haven’t gotten around to using it for anything other than my kitchen yet.
The folks at If You Care would also like to give 1 LUCKY reader of Happymomblogger the opportunity to try a pair of their Household Gloves and Sponge Clothes. The Household Gloves comes in Small, Medium, and Large and the Sponge Clothes come in a pack of 5. I think you’ll be thoroughly delighted at the usefulness of their gloves and sponge clothes and you’ll also feel good knowing that they are much safer to use than the other leading brands out on the market today.
