Green Mountain Coffee (5)

Some of the most anticipated holidays of the year are Thanksgiving and the major holidays which follow. There is a whirlwind of activity in stores and homes across the world this time of year. People are scurrying to the store for all the ingredients to favorite dishes which will adorn tables everywhere.

One of the favorites in my house this time of year are my Cranberry Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies. What are some of your family favorites at your holiday dinner table? While you are preparing for and cooking your holiday meal, give pause to consider helping the environment at the same time. By using the organic products from Pacific Foods and the eco-friendly containers from Tetra Pak, you can make a difference.

Be #CartonSmart This Holiday

If we all make just one small and smart decision about caring for our planet each day, we can make a difference. Be Carton Smart. You may not think you are making an impact with your small contribution, but when combined with others who are doing the same thing, you are.

The Tetra Pak carton packages are designed for maximum efficiency and environmental friendliness, which is just one way you can live smarter. This holiday season, Tetra Pak wants to inspire people to make these small, smart decisions when cooking for their families and stocking their pantries.  With products like the Pacific Foods Organic Pumpkin Puree, Pacific Foods Organic Jellied Cranberry Sauce and Pacific Foods Organic Chicken Simply Stock, that is a great start!

Each Tetra Pak carton is made of 70% paper, a renewable resource, from selectively harvested, re-grown trees that are FSC-certified (Forest Stewardship Council). The cartons use one-third the packaging as compared to cans and the cartons are space saving and are easy to store as well as  open. Just think, no more struggling with your can opener! You can be #CartonSmart and do away with your canned goods!

The unique packaging process used at Tetra Pak preserves the flavor and nutrients of food but they do not use preservatives. Each container is recyclable, using 60% less landfill waste than cans and because the cartons are re-closable, you can use what you need now and save the rest for later.
