I mentioned a few weeks back that I have teamed up with Unilever this month and their Cross Off Hunger Campaign. This campaign is not only raising awareness about hunger but also about making life better by utilizing techniques for sustainable living.
So, this week first I picked up some of my favorite Unilever products on my latest grocery shopping trip. I was actually pretty shocked to realize how many products I purchase regularly that are Unilever, I simply was unaware of that.
Here are a few products that I stocked up on. A few we use regularly are Country Crock, Dove Products, and Lipton Tea. I had no idea that they owned all of those brands.
I was happy to purchase them knowing the background on the Cross Off Hunger Campaign and that I was supporting a great cause to make sure that no one goes without the necessities!
Along with Crossing Off Hunger, Unilever is also pushing Sustainable Living. This encompasses a variety of aspects including health, well-being, livelihood, and environmental impacts. A few things we do to stay on top of Sustainable Living as far as the health aspects is exercising regularly, keeping up with check ups for the doctor as well as the dentist. I have always felt like those aspects have been very important right along with keeping a healthy diet.
As far the environmental aspects go, we are trying to cut back on our water usage. For instance turning off the water in the sink while cooking when it isn’t needed as well as doing the same when brushing our teeth. These little things go a long way when we all jointly take steps toward Sustainable Living.
The products we purchased are used daily in our household. I actually use the Country Crock as a healthy substitute for butter in almost all of my recipes. I always buy the light version and it seems to work just as well as regular butter in most recipes. Another great use for these tubs is to use them for leftovers and store them in the fridge.
Growing up, I always thought it was funny that my grandma would send over soup in Country Crock tubs until I got older and realized that she did it to recycle instead of just tossing them each time she used them. She had all sorts of purposes for those tubs and they were found regularly at her home as storage tubs. Now, at our house, we do the same thing!
Now as we head into the Thanksgiving season, let us know what are ways that you practice both giving back to Cross Off Hunger and Making Life Better with Sustainable Living? Share your ideas and tips with us!
