Looking Ahead!

Some of our customers choose to participate in “No Meat March” – an event encouraging people to try the meatless lifestyle for a full month. We’re here to help! Throughout the month of March, we’re offering a DOUBLE local bin option – everything you’d get in your regular Veggie Bin x2! Simply email us at info@theveggiebin.com with the subject line “No Meat March” and let us know that you’d like a SUPER-SIZED Veggie Bin next month. This double bin will only be an additional $20 – a $5 savings each week! In addition, we’ll be helping our meatless friends with an extra meatless recipe section in our newsletter.

Happy Cooking!

Strawberries Unearthed!

Your strawberries came to us from The Family Garden, less than 100 miles from most of our customers’ homes.

It’s a magnificent time for strawberries in North Florida and we’ve had some real beauties in the past few weeks. Your strawberries are best stored unwashed in your refrigerator until you’re ready to prepare or eat them. Excess moisture will cause mold and mushiness. For the very best berry longevity, put a sheet pan lined with paper towels in your fridge and store the berries on it in a single layer without them touching. If you don’t have that kind of room, store them in a glass container with a lid.

This Valentine’s week we’re featuring a collection of strawberry recipes designed with love in mind. Try sharing some of these sweet, romantic and beautiful recipes with the ones you love.

Need Veggie Tech Support? Visit us on Facebook to share recipes and tips with other Veggie Bin customers and ask any questions you might have about the contents of your bin. You can also email us at info@theveggiebin.com.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

Returning your bin clean and undamaged means that we can use it again and again. This keeps costs down, minimizes landfill waste and keeps your carbon footprint smaller. Bins that aren’t returned will incur a replacement fee, so be sure to put it out for pickup!
