Byrd’s Nest Soaps Available through The Veggie Bin

Created in Jacksonville, FL, this handmade natural soap is worth its weight in gold! The Veggie Bin has opted to carry the Salted Citrus Soap, as it reminds us of  being at the groves, peeling the first Satsuma of the season. Byrd’s Nest makes a small variety of all natural vegan soaps which never includes synthetic ingredients, colorants, or perfume fragrances. Don’t let all that natural talk scare you — This soap will suds right up and has an amazing scent! You can find their soap in our online shop under Bath & Body for just $5.00/bar.


The Heat is Here!

The temperature outside has turned up and there is no escaping it from here on out. To keep your bins staying fresh at your doorstep, be sure to leave a cooler out on delivery days. We request that the cooler is large enough to fit the entire box and it’s contents inside. The waxed cardboard helps insulate the veggies and keep them cooler for longer.

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!
