MyBlogSpark: Green Giant "Seeds of Change" Giveaway!

I love MyBlogSpark and it's been awhile since I have had the opportunity to do a review and giveaway for them.  When I was contacted about posting a Spark for Green Giant, I knew it'd be an easy one!  We already love Green Giant frozen vegetables.  I currently have their broccoli & cheese sauce in the freezer- wonderful over a baked potato and so much healthier than butter and sour cream.


I knew Green Giant products were great, what I didn't know is that the company is also trying to do its part to care for our earth and keep it "green".  They shared a little bit of how they do this with their reviewers;

"For Green Giant, it’s all about trying to live up to the name by working every day to care for the land, the people who grow our vegetables and the families who share our vegetables at their tables. Throughout its century-long history, Green Giant has worked to reduce its environmental footprint through many measures including:

  • Reducing the amount of land and water needed to grow vegetables
  • Packing vegetables in smaller, lighter cans, so it takes less fuel to deliver them to supermarket shelves
  • Utilizing traditional seed breeding methods over the last 35 years to double the amount of sweet corn grown on an acre of land
  • Teaming up with growers to install a more efficient irrigation system that can reduce water use by more than a million gallons a year;
  • Switching to more earth-friendly paperboard to package frozen vegetables, saving approximately 54,000 trees annually in the process.
Green Giant is now celebrating the 40th anniversary of Earth Day by giving $200,000 to The Nature Conservancy to help fund an innovative project that will encourage greener farming practices to repair and protect a natural treasure — the Root River, one of Minnesota’s (home to Green Giant) best trout streams.

To learn more about Green Giant’s sustainability program or make a donation to The Nature Conservancy, visit http://www.GreenGiant.com/sustainability during the month of April." 


As part of this Spark, I received a "Seeds of Change" prize package from Green Giant and I get to give one away to one of you as well!



The “Seeds of Change” prize pack includes one VIP coupon valid for a free package of Green Giant frozen vegetables, a mini herb garden, an eco-friendly bamboo utensil set, and a 100% recyclable grocery tote.  


I am a black thumb normally, but my little herb plants are growing nicely in my windowsill.  I am so excited!  The utensil set is nice and the grocery tote is large and came in handy when I did my monthly BJ's shopping.  And of course, a box of veggies is great too.  Especially if it's broccoli with cheese sauce. Yum.  All in all, it's a nice little prize pack!
