Buying Products With Eco-Friendly Packaging

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Tetra Pak . The opinions and text are all mine.

girls looking in waterMy girls love the weekends. I always say we are a weekend family in that our weekdays are filled with school and activities so we make the most of our weekends.

My husband is one of those guys who just loves to find new adventures and is always taking our girls to new places. We went apple picking this weekend and yet we happened upon a pond in the forest preserve behind the orchards. It was the perfect spot to stop and enjoy a drink.

It’s fall here in Southern California and during the peak afternoon it can get warm out. We stopped in the sunshine to soak in the sun and enjoy a cold drink. The thing is, my husband and I want our girls to experience the world. We want them to be smart and compassionate citizens so taking care of the earth is important to us.

We believe in buying eco-friendly products and we raise our girls in such a way that they’ve learned to recycle and care about protecting our planet. We know the benefits of buying Tetra Pak products and how they fit our active lifestyle.

Did you know that Tetra Pak products are lightweight and they even fold flat for the trip back to the recycling bin? They require no refrigeration until they’re opened, saving valuable cooler space (the single-serve milk is perfect for pancakes while camping!). They’re safe for all ages because they’re easy to open and have no sharpe edges. Plus we can teach our girls that they’re fully recyclable and made from renewable natural resources. Most of organic food companies we really love use Tetra Pak packaging because they are made with extra layers, you don’t need added preservatives! famous meditation quotesSpending time in nature and with our earth has without a doubt given me a better appreciation for our planet. We hope that by being outside, learning about different eco-systems and the creatures that live in them will help our children also appreciate the earth. We love to go hiking and there are so many trails all across this country. Kids can learn so much form their interactions with nature. It’s all about teaching our girls to live with nature, being responsible in our purchases like buying products with eco-friendly packaging and just being with the ones you love. It’s all about making memories with my kids and helping them grow into caring adults. Teaching them about eco-friendly packing is just another simple way I’ve helped them grow. You can learn more about Tetra Pak on their website.

  8. Denise B. on October 7, 2017 at 3:25 pm

    We inspire our children by feeding the homeless.

  9. Rebecca C on October 7, 2017 at 12:01 pm

    I hope to inspire by demonstrating kindness and patience. It’s so important that we respect each other, so teaching compassion from an early age is essential.

  10. Shane A on October 6, 2017 at 4:04 am

    I hope to succeed in passing down my Eco-conscience lifestyle to my children.

  11. Sarah Mathias on October 5, 2017 at 6:01 pm

    I want to pass onto my kids the importance of basic human decency. I think it is important to have a basic kindness and respect for others.

  12. Ashley C on October 5, 2017 at 11:28 am

    I hope to inspire my son to be compassionate and caring towards people, animals and the environment.

  13. kathy Persons on October 5, 2017 at 5:25 am

    Always by giving back and doing with what you have

  14. Carol Cassara on October 5, 2017 at 1:32 am

    It’s good to make children aware of what to do to help save the environment. I think it’s nice that you’re buying and using eco-friendly products as well!

  15. elizabeth p on October 4, 2017 at 11:01 pm

    I teach my kids by being compassionate to animals.

  16. Wendy Polisi on October 4, 2017 at 10:01 pm

    I go out of my way to support eco friendly companies. I love seeing big people make these changes.

  17. Adrianne Betz on October 4, 2017 at 9:30 pm

    I love seeing posts like this! Any little thing we can do to help our environment is a step towards helping in a big way!

  18. Cindy Gordon on October 4, 2017 at 9:29 pm

    I couldn’t agree more! We are vegetarian in my household as well and we love giving back to nature.

  19. travel blogger on October 4, 2017 at 6:18 pm

    Tetra Pak sounds perfect for us! We are always out hiking and on the go so we need snacks that don’t need refrigeration. I like to try and inspire hope in my son by teaching him about the world, and how important it is to take care of it, but most importantly how to. I think if we teach them young and give them the proper tools, it won’t seem as overwhelming to step up and take action.

  20. brianne on October 4, 2017 at 6:08 pm

    I want my children to be kind to others and to each other. We have to be the best examples for them!

  21. Dogvills on October 4, 2017 at 3:24 pm

    I want my children to learn the value of hard work and charity. To use their talents to be responsible citizens and set an example to others. I want them to grow up to be good Christians and be compassionate towards the needs of the less fortunate.

  22. Azeem Isaahaque on October 4, 2017 at 3:07 pm

    Tetra pak is very nice being eco friendly plus secure and strong

  23. Pam Wattenbarger on October 4, 2017 at 3:02 pm

    I have always really liked TetraPak packaging. It’s nice that it’s squares or rectangles so they fit togetherness nicely in the cabinet.

  24. Rachel Ferrucci on October 4, 2017 at 12:35 pm

    Knowing we just throw away the packaging, I would love if companies used Eco friendly packaging. It’s so important to find little things like this that will have a big impact on our planet

  25. Marty C on October 4, 2017 at 12:11 pm

    I hope to teach her to do for herself and take care of others.

  26. Colleen Lanin on October 4, 2017 at 11:23 am

    I’d love it if all companies went with eco friendly packaging. It can’t possibly cost enough more to ruin their profit margins. Our planet needs this.

  27. Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle on October 4, 2017 at 11:23 am

    Eco friendly packaging is so important to me. I hate the thought of buying something that will kill an animal or the planet with its packaging.

  28. Catherine Sargent on October 4, 2017 at 10:59 am

    It looks like great way to spend the weekend. I love to be on the water and fish, I bring my son with me when I go to help with the community beach cleanup a couple times a year,

  29. Theresa on October 4, 2017 at 10:57 am

    I love that Tetra Pak is foldable for easy storage until you can get to the recycle bin. We recycle everything we can, so I am happy when I find a packaging that makes it easier to do so when on the go.

  30. barbg on October 4, 2017 at 7:23 am

    By being an overall good friendly person who will listen to you not just talk at you.

  31. D Schmidt on October 4, 2017 at 7:00 am

    I hope to inspire them by being a good role model and by educating them on the world around them and their impact in it.

  32. beth shepherd on October 4, 2017 at 6:27 am

    I hope I inspire my children to never give up hope and stay steady. Thank you

  33. alice minx on October 4, 2017 at 4:26 am

    To get an education and to never give up, even when it gets hard

  34. Jaque Richards on October 3, 2017 at 4:58 pm

    My children and I exercise together, volunteer together, recycle together. My children inspire ME to be a better person and I hope I am inspiring them to be better people. 🙂 Thank you.
