Totally LOCAL.

We are so excited that our ORGANIC BIN is 100% local this week!  This doesn’t happen as often as we would like, especially with the amount of rain we have had…and continue having this year. We want to give a big shout out to our organic farmers for all they do to make it possible for us to eat such beautiful, locally-grown organic produce.  In just another week, you will be able to get your hands on our local organic blueberries from Harriett’s Bluff Organic Blueberry Farm. Nothing says spring like fresh blueberries!

Making Substitutions

Have no fear! If you do not like on our our selected items in your regular sized organic or local bin, you have the choice to remove it and double another item that’s already in the bin or make a substitution. And if you have too many veggies, the great news is that you can always select French Pantry Baguettes as one of your substitutions! Find step by step instructions in our blog post.

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!
