Lettuce make your holiday kitchen merry and bright with a brand new KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer in the color of your choice, plus $100 to spend at Greenling.com! We are celebrating the holiday baking season with a KitchenAid Giveaway. There are so many easy ways to enter — spread the word about Greenling on social media or participate in our Books 4 Kids holiday book drive for double your chance to win! Visit our blog to enter!
We are excited to announce our first-ever holiday book drive! Starting this week, Greenling drivers will be collecting children’s books in all of our delivery areas to benefit local children’s hospitals. Giving books is easy– just leave them in your green bin next time you’re expecting a delivery. Our friendly drivers will pick up the books along with your bin, and later in the season we will take all the books to area children’s hospitals! If you don’t have an order on the way and still want to give to the book drive, call our customer service team at 512-440-8449 to schedule a pick-up.
We will be picking up children’s books for the entire month, so raid those bookshelves for like-new books, or grab a few new books while you’re out and about this weekend. The hospitals have requested books in new or like-new condition, since well-loved and heavily used books might carry germs.
Be sure to tell your friends across Texas– Greenling customers in Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio, and Houston are invited to participate! Customers in Austin and San Antonio will be supporting Dell Children’s Hospital Library. Dallas Fort Worth books will be donated to Chilren’s Medical Center Library, and books collected in Houston will go to Texas Children’s Hospital.
Customers who participate in the book drive will receive 10 entries towards Greenling’s KitchenAid Holiday Giveaway. Our driver will leave a doorhanger at participating homes with a special passcode for the giveaway, which customers can enter below. Our goal is to collect as many books as possible to bring a little joy to the reading rooms at the hospitals this holiday season. Thanks in advance for all your help towards this worthy cause!
Shop with Greenling and you might win an all-expenses paid trip to Mexico! Greenling and Playa Viva resort are teaming up to give away a vacation for two along the beautiful beaches of Zihuatenejo, Mexico.

More information on how to enter can be found on our blog!
One simple way to enter our Playa Viva contest is by adding a $5 donation to one of our charity partners your Greenling order! Here in DFW, we’re partnering with Gardeners in Community Development (GICD), a Dallas-based nonprofit that creates community gardens in Dallas’ urban areas. Since 1994, GICD has made it possible for hundreds of Dallas area families (mostly low-income or refugee) to enjoy fresh vegetables, herbs, fruits, and flowers grown in their community gardens! There are five main garden projects that serve African, Laotion, Cambodian, and Bhutanese refugees. These families often grow unique fruit and vegetable varietals that grow surprisingly well here in Texas! The above photos are from their Live Oak Community Garden. Check out those awesome longbeans!
Although GICD owns the land that houses the community gardens, taxes and water bills are very costly! Last summer, one garden’s water bill was upwards of $1,000. As of July 19, Greenling customers have raised $140! Thanks everyone! Can we raise $500 by the end of the month?

At Playa Viva, guests truly have a one-of-a kind experience! There are only 8 “rooms” at the resort, and you’ll find yourself enjoying the community aspects of Playa Viva. Group activities are encouraged and include common meals, daily yoga classes, swimming, and movies under the stars. About 85% of the property is a private reserve, so you’ll have a huge wild space to explore!
And cooking is at the heart (or stomach!) of Playa Viva! Chefs strive for healthy Mexican cuisine, using herbs and vegetables grown in the hotel’s organic vegetable gardens and tended by local farmers. Free-range game and fish, grass-fed beef (when available) and vegetarian cuisine will provide healthy and memorable dining.
In addition to facilitating interaction, the resort’s construction is super eco-friendly! While some strive simply for sustainability, Playa Viva aims for a regenerative approach, and a positive effect on the surrounding environment. The resort’s furniture is created by local artisans using reclaimed wood, and as much as 75% of construction waste is recycled. Its open-air room design means no air conditioning but trust us, you won’t even miss it! The resort’s tessellated building design maximizes air flow throughout the resort buildings. Plus Zihuatanejo, Mexico enjoys a year-round tropical climate, with the temperatures between 73 to 93 degrees. Sounds lovely!
Every comfort of the resort is obtained sustainably with through attention to detail, from the edible landscaping to the thermal and solar heated water. And, Playa Viva is mostly powered by solar and wind energy. Playa Viva is a remarkable haven of ecology and relaxation. My the odds be ever in your flavor!
