CLOSED - GIVEAWAY!


THIS GIVE AWAY IS NOW CLOSED!
Just in time for Earth Day (which is next week - 4/22/10), Green Giant has committed to reduce its carbon footprint. Here are just a few of the awesome things Green Giant is doing to be more green:
  • Reducing the amount of land and water needed to grow vegetables
  • Packing vegetables in smaller, lighter cans, so it takes less fuel to deliver them to supermarket shelves
  • Utilizing traditional seed breeding methods over the last 35 years to double the amount of sweet corn grown on an acre of land
  • Teaming up with growers to install a more efficient irrigation system that can reduce water use by more than a million gallons a year
  • Switching to more earth-friendly paperboard to package frozen vegetables, saving approximately 54,000 trees annually in the process.
Green Giant is now celebrating the 40th anniversary of Earth Day by giving $200,000 to The Nature Conservancy to help fund an innovative project that will encourage greener farming practices to repair and protect a natural treasure - the Root River, one of Minnesota´s (home to Green Giant) best trout streams.

To learn more about Green Giant´s sustainability program or make a donation to The Nature Conservancy, visit www.GreenGiant.com/sustainability during the month of April.


What changes have your families made (or plan to make) in an effort to leave less of a carbon footprint?


To celebrate Earth Day and promote green living, Green Giant (via MyBlogSpark) has generously offered to give one lucky reader a "Seeds of Change" prize pack. This awesome package includes one VIP coupon valid for a free package of Green Giant frozen vegetables, in addition to a mini herb garden, an eco-friendly bamboo utensil set, and a 100% recyclable grocery tote. This reusable tote is worth 5 cents each time you take it to the grocery store (Fry's & Bashas definitely do this!)

  5. Green idea:
    I buy paper towels, but don't use them for just ANYTHING. Instead, I bought a ton of white rags at costco (they come in packs of like 50... I can't remember) & I use them around the house when cleaning, then wash and re-use. They last FOREVER and as they get uglier/dirty looking I just down grade them. They go from kitchen towels to house cleaning towels, to paint/project rags. It's rare that I have to throw one away. Because of this it takes my family FOREVER to go through a roll of paper towels. ALSO... if you haven't used your newspapers to wash your windows... TRY IT!

  23. We got rid of plastic water bottles in our house and now only use green Brita water bottles to take to work, the gym...etc. I was amazed at how many bottles we were going through each week (and how much we were spending on them)!
