Local Organic Produce Delivered to Your Door – Spud.ca

ImageI’m excited! As part of my sustainability course I took last semester I had to draft a Personal Social Responsibility Plan. Sound serious? Not really. It’s just a way to look at your life to identify areas that you could lower your footprint and put an actionable plan in place to do it. I like to buy local and organic produce but because of where we live I’m usually driving all over the place to do it. So part of my plan was to get our groceries delivered by Spud.

I had been meaning to do it in the fall but it just got to busy. But last week I placed my first order.  Yesterday when I got home my big beautiful container of fresh veggies awaited me. I was completely impressed with the quality of the produce –  It’s a full service grocery store that gives you the added bonus of counting GHG saved by shopping online. So in one fell swoop I’ve fulfilled one of my New Year’s resolutions to eat more than just tomatoes for veggies and to lower my carbon footprint. What’s next? Cycling to work – brrrrrr

  1. We are thinking of doing this too, but with fussy kids (and Himself) who only like some veggies, I would end up eating an entire cabbage, cauliflower or bunch of leeks by myself (sigh). I’m trying to get Himself on board so that the kids will have no choice but to follow suit.
    I think it’s brilliant that you have a plan and goals to achieve… Well done!!!

    • Hi there,, You can actually select the veggies you want or you can do the ‘what’s in season’ option but for the first round I just bought what I normally would get. I was completely impressed with the veggies. I also have a gluten free diet and the grocery store caters to finicky stomaches like man. Can you tell I love it:)

      • The box organisers here only let you opt out of 2, maybe three veggies for a the year and I’m severely allergic to mushrooms so that’s one gone.

        Himself and the kids have a list of about 8 things they prefer not to eat (I still cook them on occasion so they can’t avoid them ALL the time) but our friends said some weeks in winter they have two cabbages in the box for weeks on end. I haven’t found an argument that gets around that one yet.
