Welcome to Day 3 of the Organic or Bust Giveaway and Review Event at Freebies and Much More! I'm so glad you've found us! We've had some great organic food related giveaways so now it's time to post about a way to store your organic food! I'm starting out the day with a wonderful review and giveaway sponsored by Green Ostrich.
A woman-owned business founded in 2009 based just outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Green Ostrich started with the following observation: the energy-intensive retail stores that we frequent do not offer many Earth-friendly, green products. That, and we were spending a lot of time and energy driving in our car to and from these stores.
So, we decided to create an online store dedicated to Earth-friendly, green gifts and green toys to spark a consumer movement that requires environmentally-sound solutions for our lives. We help people make changes, not sacrifices. We help them live well and refresh the Earth. Green Ostrich is also a member of 1% for the Planet, a growing global movement of companies that donate 1% of their sales to a network of environmental organizations worldwide.
Going green is spreading from city to city and is slowly making its way across the oceans to countries all around the world. It's about time is all I have to say! It doesn't hurt you to buy a recycled product or to eat organic food. In fact, it's helping the world out! Using Earth-friendly products in our daily lives helps everyone and everything.
My house is getting greener by the day. Thanks to Green Ostrich, I now have 100% recycled, BPA-free Preserve Apple Green food storage containers in size small and large. These food storage containers are so cool...really! I took them to work the other day and all my co-workers were asking me about them and where I found them. I love that the color is so eye-catching. I even had a little boy walk by the lunch room and say to his mom that he wanted my bowls...haha. See for yourselves...aren't they just great?!
Not only is the color great, but the lids are too! They're not pop-on lids, they're screw-top lids. I put the container in my lunch-box and usually I have to be very careful with making sure it stays upright...not anymore! I'll try my hand at swinging it around with soup in it next week!
Here are some highlights of the food storage containers: They are seal-tight, they come with a screw-top lid, they are stackable, they are made in the USA, they are made with 100% recycled, BPA-free, phthalate-free, and melamine-free #5 plastic, and they are dishwasher/freezer-safe. These highlights make me want to order the rest of the Preserve products at Green Ostrich!
Green Ostrich carries a HUGE assortment of green products and gifts. Items range from house-ware items, kitchen items, school items, children toys, and even pet items. Green Ostrich welcomes new products all of the time so you should stop by often to see what's new.
Green Ostrich offers Earth-friendly, durable, memorable products that replace common disposable products. Green Ostrich helps people make changes, not sacrifices. They help them live well and refresh the Earth. Start your day off like me by making a difference...
