It's the holiday season and many of us are baking and cooking up a storm. We have a pantry filled with dry goods, everyday staples and special holiday items for baking. We have cans and cans of food items jamming our pantry's and cabinets and as we are cooking and baking all of that bulky packaging will go into the trash and the landfills.
There is a way to cut down down on all that waste in our landfills, however, and that is by becoming a smarter consumer and striving to Become Carton Smart. This doesn't have to be a big hassle however, when you use Pacific Foods.
You might be asking yourself why does this matter? Well because Pacific Foods packaging keeps food fresher they don't have to use chemicals or preservatives in their foods. They also require no refrigeration, saving on time and energy and many of their cartons are resealable so you can use just the exact amount you need and save the rest for later. And they are often recyclable!
With items such as Chicken Stock, Pumpkin Puree and Cranberry Sauce it is easy to incorporate these items into your menus, plus they take up much less room in your pantry and garbage.
