There’s something about spring-the buds popping out on trees, the birds singing through open home windows, and the feeling that brand-new life is finally seeping back into the earth-that makes me feel like providing my way of life an overhaul. I’m always influenced this time around of year to swap winter comfort foods for fresh produce as well as healthy and balanced treats, to clean my kitchen as well as re-think the means I have actually been dealing with the earth. It’s a time for self-reflection and also taking activity, for sweeping away all the regret that comes from months of gluttony as well as laziness.
Since ending up being a mom I’ve become extra familiar with my influence on the setting, since I feel it’s our duty to leave the planet in adequate form for our youngsters to live in as well as enjoy it. Yet regardless of just how tough I attempt, I still really feel like I have actually got a lengthy means to go.
Since composing this post on environment-friendly spring-cleaning a few years ago, I swapped all the chemical-filled cleaning items in our cupboard for their natural choices. I figured this would certainly benefit our wellness along with the water we’re unloading these items right into. I shop in your area, bring my very own bags when I go shopping (as well as have actually educated my two-year-old to claim: ‘No bags please!’), and also I reuse like a champ!
But there’s something that still actually bothers me, and also it’s obtained worse because our household has expanded. It’s the large amount of waste (recycling as well as rubbish) that we produce whenever we earn grocery stores, household materials, and also toys. Cardboard, plastic, packaging-it all accumulate and also appears so absolutely wasteful.
That’s why it’s truly vital to applaud brands that actually take packaging and also ecological obligation into their very own hands. As a mommy, I’m certainly extra likely to sustain these brand names and also select their products when I go to the store.
In the spirit of happiness and springtime, Planters-the brand name that’s been leading the world in healthy and balanced, top quality snacks for greater than 100 years-has produced One Hundred Percent recyclable product packaging (the Envirotub!) that’s made from recycled FAMILY PET (translation: polycarbonate polymer, or the material that’s used in synthetic fibers and beverage and also food containers). In doing this, Planters will be transforming over 1 million tins every year into new product packaging, drawing away all that waste from the landfill.
So, now all Planters Naturals and Gently Sea Salty products are not just far better for you but better for the setting also. Pretty remarkable huh?!
This implies less junk, less guilt, and less damage to the earth!
And, in the spirit of consuming healthier foods, nuts are truly a super food-because they’re a rich resource of vitamins and minerals (iron, calcium, necessary fatty acids, and so on) and they call for no negotiating when provided to youngsters as a snack. They’re ideal for on-the-go mummies like me, that are never ever organized sufficient to prepare food ahead of time and also require something very easy to throw right into my bag and pull out in a crunch.
There’s a lot more pleased news. Beginning April 2 and also running till June 15, Planters is having 2 genuinely remarkable Facebook contests to celebrate the launch of the Envirotub. First, see their Facebook page as well as vote for your preferred Canadian Environmental Charity to receive $10,000 from Planters.
