The hardest part about hunting and gathering is coming up with a logo and packaging that will make your product desirable. Avoid cryptic nutrition labels with today's Groupon: for $50, you get one month of weekly fruit and snack delivery to an office snack room from Greenling (a $100 total value). Use Greenling's zip-code finder to confirm if your office snack room is within its service area. A refundable $10 bin deposit is not covered by this Groupon; simply return the bin after your bounty arrives to get a full refund or keep the bin for future deliveries.
Greenling delivers preservative- and pesticide-free organic and environmentally friendly eats to Austin-area workplaces. The office box runneth over with a week's worth of seasonal fruits and a rotating selection of workplace-favorite munchies ($25/week). For each of four weeks, daily grinders can healthily indulge in fresh bananas, apples, and oranges paired with break-room staples such as coffee, kettle corn, and peanut-butter-smeared Post-It notes. Each Monday, a new batch of earth-sourced noshables replenishes the bin.
Be sure not to schedule a delivery for Memorial Day on Monday, May 30 if your office will be closed.
When Mason Arnold left the University of Texas with his chemical-engineering degree in hand, he was appalled at how chemical fertilizers were hurting the local environment. Empowered by his belief in organic farming and landscaping, he and his business partner sought to find a way to get nutritious and fresh food to homes while leaving a minimal carbon footprint. The result was Greenling, an online shop with an extensive selection of pantry items, meats, produce, and dairy products from local farmers and national organic brands.
