While we were eating Alyssa and I started talking about all of these tables that were there with food left behind by recent customers. “It’s crazy, all of this food that’s just being wasted”, Alyssa said. And she was right, it was crazy. There is no telling how much food they toss away each day.
What does that have to do with this Cranberry Pumpkin Pie Loaf though? Well, it happens to have something to do with the ingredients that helped make that Cranberry Pumpkin Pie Loaf. When I was contacted to try out the Pacific items that you see in the photo below the conversation with Alyssa was fresh on my mind. When I was reading about the Pacific brand items and their Tetra Pak® cartons, I came across these facts: Tetra Pak® cartons are made of 70% paper, a renewable resource, from selectively harvested, re-grown trees that are FSC-certified (Forest Stewardship Council) and these cartons use 1/3 of the packaging compared to cans (or even eggs!)
Just think of the thousands and thousands of cans and cartons that get tossed into land fields everyday. These Tetra Pak® cartons are recyclable and result in 60% less landfill waste than cans! On a day that I was reminded of so much waste it was nice to check out a product that works towards reducing it!
