Any mum who has ever been to Whole Foods knows how @#$%^&* expensive organic produce is. Any mum who has male children knows that they eat their weight in food. Often several times a day, alas. And any mum who has looked into finding a local co-op, knows that they generally require “pick up” at the local Farmers Market – which sounds convenient – until you think of loading up two children into the car, parking, schlepping and unpredictable weather. So. What is a mum who needs organic food, but would also like to have enough shekels to send her children to uni, to do?
Well boys and girls – if you live in Chicago, you need only call Door to Door Organics. For $40 a week you will receive enough produce to ensure that your two hungry boys will have fruit and veg at each meal. If both parents are also fruit/veg eaters – you may want two boxes – which is still less cash a week than you probably spend on one Whole Foods run.
Door to Door Organics delivers to your very own casa, come rain or shine – which I think is just genius. It doesn’t get any easier than this mama – or any less expensive.
I am only just subscribing this week – so I will update you as to possible savings.
And remember – the more we support local organic farmers – the healthier our land, air, water and children will be. Make Monsanto angry. Join a co-op today.
-"The Green Stork" Claire Douglass is a Chicago mum of two sons and heirs (one her pride, the other her joy), concerned with ever increasing data connecting childhood health issues, from asthma to autism, to exposure to common household toxins, chemicals and air quality – seeks to detoxify her nest and create as green and still beautiful a childhood as possible. Without driving herself, or her loved ones, crazy. The former is going far better than the latter.
