Imagine if everyone made one small, smart decision a day. How much would it help our planet and our own personal worlds? As an individual, it feels small, but as a collective, the small, smart decisions add up. Tetra Pak applauds the thousands of small acts of smartness that add up to make a big difference.

Tetra Pak carton packages, are designed for maximum efficiency and environmental friendliness, and are one small way to live smarter. So read further and find some additional ways in which you and your family can Become Carton Smart.

When I received my Tetra Pack, I was so impressed to see first the size, but also in looking through the ingredients on the package itself, how nutricious the items that I received were too.

The boxes themselves (as you see in the pictures in this post) are definitely "Green" being enclosed in 70% paper containers. On top of this the company uses only selectively harvested, re-grown trees that are FSC-certified (Forest Stewardship Council).

The  packages are also much more efficient of the space that is provided and in actuality the cartons use 1/3 of the packaging compared to cans…or even an egg (Talk about mind blowing).

I found that the cartons were easy to stack due to their smaller size. Also their rectangular size allowed me to be much more efficient with my space and get even more items in my pantry than I have been able to in the past. Cartons are also re-closable so you can use what you need and save the rest for later. This was one factor that I worried about at first, but when I opened one of the items I found that I could easily close the carton after I was done.

In trying the products all I can say is YUM! The product in these cartons is full of flavor and even better, the flavor and nutrients that you find in these are not tainted by presertatives! I used the Chicken Stock that I received to make a Chicken and Rice Soup that I was going to bring to work for a holiday potluck. I always use stock to give my soup a great taste and this time around I switched out my regular stocck with the Pacific Foods Chicken Stock that I received, and just like in trying the other products you see above, the flavor was amazing and it seemingly made the base of the soup taste better than it has in the past when I have made it with other products.

I ended up exploring the site even further and was amazed to see the breadth and depth of the products that they offer (as I had no idea). If all of the rest of the products are as good as what I have experienced here, I am sold and am looking forward to trying more in the future!
