TurtlesOcean_EntryInfoOverlay

“I love battling traffic to drive to the store and shop for groceries, especially when it’s over 100 degrees outside!” …said no one ever. Skip all that hassle and take a vacation from the grocery store this July, and you might win an all-expenses paid trip to Mexico! Starting this week, Greenling and Playa Viva resort are teaming up to give away a vacation for two along the beautiful beaches of Zihuatenejo, Mexico.*

The winner of our Sustainable Summer Giveaway will receive an all-inclusive 6 day / 5 night stay for 2 adults in a deluxe suite at the Playa Viva eco-friendly resort. Guests at Playa Viva have the opportunity to go horseback riding along the beach, dine on meals harvested from an onsite organic garden and relax in solar-powered luxury. The resort even has a turtle sanctuary onsite! Sounds like somewhere you’d like to vacation, right? Get excited, there are three ways to enter:

  1. Get shopping– every Greenling delivery over $50 in the month of July is a chance to win!
  2. Refer a friend to Greenling.com using the “Refer a Friend” tab on our Facebook page. When they place their first order of any size, you are entered to win!
  3. Add a $5 donation to one of Greenling’s charity partners or the Playa Viva’s Turtle Sanctuary on your Greenling order of any size. Every donation in the month of July is a chance to win!

Greenling is proud to bring local and organic food right to your doorstep, and when we can help you take a vacation from driving to the store, that’s even better. We’ll be celebrating our Sustainable Summer Giveaway all month long with mini-giveaways and sales! You can keep up with the fun on our Facebook page, Twitter, and right here on the blog using the hashtag #VivaGreenling!

Life’s a Peach!

texas peach

Forget beaches, we’ve got peaches! While you might feel like complaining as temperatures rise, just fill that mouth with a local peach instead. Juicy and sweet, it will most likely help you forget the heat!

Texas is known for its delightful peaches. And although we’ve been having a rough peach season this year, the weather has also made these peaches some of the most flavorful we’ve ever had! These treats are more than just tasty though, they also contain a nice supply of vitamin A and vitamin C. In fact their special mix of vitamins, minerals and water can literally make your skin glow!

Because of the warm weather and the late freezes Texas peach season has come a little early and might end a little early, so now is the time to dig in and eat yourself alotta peaches. If you are looking to bake these babies, we have a special “peaches, seconds” product that includes peaches that might have some bruises, but are excellent in pies, smoothies and more! This week we have a pie crust and local whipping cream on sale for the perfect peach pie! Pretty peachin’ right?
