- 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.
To motivate everyone to be green, Green Giant is holding a little giveaway. First they sent me this and then shared that I can give one away too!! Very cool!
I only have one rule this time (shocking, I know!) - tell me how you are trying to be green for Earth Day. You get one entry for your comment and one entry tweeting about the giveaway (make sure you include me @allthelilstuff).
This contest will end at Midnight EST on Earth Day, so act quick. :-)
*Many thanks to Green Giant and MyBlogSpark for providing me with both a prize packages, and for asking me to host this giveaway!*
