Best. Giveaway. Ever. (You can win!)

Good morning my loves!
 
I have some very exciting news for you today that I think you’re going to dig!
 
Smoothe OperatorsNatasha Oliver & Erin Saccomano – are peddling their cute little butts off for a fundraising campaign to open their own smoothie truck in Southern Ontario that will feature locally sourced, seasonally available ingredients, by the most environmentally conscious and sustainable means possible.

Dude – they’re going to fuel the on-truck appliances with solar and super-cool bike-power. How cool is that?
 

Plus they utilize vegetable puns better than anyone I’ve ever met. You have to see it to believe it. This kind of social & environmental consciousness and wicked smarts need to be supported. And after you’ve heard all my ranting about Ontario being “Onterrible” for real food solutions, these gals are a couple of chicks I can really drink up! Bring on the koolaid!

If you aren’t sold yet… How about THIS:
 
It’s their belief that by leveraging relationships with local farmers, community gardens and advocating the “grow your own” movement, they can service the needs of Smoothe Operator as a business entity, as well as meet, and exceed the health needs of their customers and communities. They make this possible by:
 
  • Primarily sourcing seasonal, locally grown, organic produce from local farmers to make the most delicious smoothies & juices.
  • Fueling the truck with old vegetable-oil, or deep-fryer oil from local restaurants, otherwise known as bio-diesel.
  • Reconnecting people with their food by offering a blend-your-own-smoothie discount by using one of their super-cool bike-powered-blenders.
  • Fostering a sense of community through their incentive to grow-your-own-garden and they will blend the crap out of it. (Ok, maybe not the crap, but definitely all the good stuff!)
  • Implementing a no-waste policy: returning all pulp & scraps back to the soil, as well as serving up their delicious concoctions in fully biodegradable and/or reusable containers.
  • Supporting local businesses by carrying independent, third-party snacks & treats to “pear” with your drink.

 We can all get on board with that, right? I thought so! And just to entice you a little bit more (not that you need it because YOU are also super friggin awesome) Natasha, Erin and I are hosting a giveaway!
