The If You Care brand was first created in 1990 and started with unbleached coffee filters. If You Care had the first and only unbleached coffee filters in North America at that time! There was no other brand in the North American market offering brown chlorine-free paper products.
Then in 2004, the very first Aluminium Foil made from 100% recycled aluminium was launched by If You Care. This product featured a 95% energy savings compared to conventional aluminium foil.
