Each product has individual impact-based metrics that correspond to each of the five following categories.
A product can score 20 possible points in each category for a total of 100 points. Point distribution is based on how many metrics/certifications are met for each category. For each metric:
If a product meets the requirement, it will positively impact its total score.
If a product does not meet the requirement, it will negatively impact its total score.
If a metric is unrelated to the product, it is factored out of the calculation and has a neutral impact on its total score.
Where You Come In:
If you have set your My FIG Values in your account settings, our base FIG Value score will be joined with your FIG Values preferences to calculate a personalized weighted score. If you care more about one impact category over another, those associated criteria will play a larger part in determining the final My FIG Values score.
Our goal is to create a scoring system that helps you better see how different products match up to the values you care about! Be sure to set up your FIG Values preferences here.

FIG Value Breakdown
Overall FIG Value
If You Care
The If You Care brand was 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. Parchment Baking Paper and Baking Cups soon followed, both unbleached as well. There was no other brand in the North American market offering brown chlorine-free paper products. In 2004, the very first Aluminum Foil made from 100% recycled aluminum was launched. This product featured a 95% energy savings compared to conventional aluminum foil. Then in 2007, Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil for grilling and barbecuing, also from 100% recycled aluminum, and waxed paper, from unbleached paper coated with soybean wax, were launched. If You Care embarked on an aggressive growth pattern beginning 2009, launching innovative and unique products every year such as 100% carbon neutral Firelighters, made from FSC certified wood and vegetable oil, Sandwich and Snack bags from unbleached greaseproof paper, all natural sponge cloths and reusable paper towels from cellulose and Non-GMO cotton, Fair Trade Household Gloves among others. If You Care Laundry and Dish Detergents were also added to the range. In 2016, If You Care introduced Parchment Roasting Bags, the first non-stick parchment roasting bags in the market, to replace petroleum-based plastic ones. If You Care products are produced with a view to reducing the amount of waste in our waste streams. If possible, nothing should remain after the product has been used and properly disposed of. The packaging is made from unbleached recycled cardboard or paper which should be recycled again.
