So, I live on the 4th floor of a brownstone and sometimes if I'm feeling lazy I order Fresh Direct and slip the guy a tip to take my groceries up the stairs. Often my cheapness outweighs my laziness (or, more accurately, I simply have no food in my house) but this week, I'm going to change that because Fresh Direct is doing something awesome!!!
From now until April 21st, if you spend more than $100 on groceries with them, they will donate an arbor in your honor to the Nature Conseratory's "Plant a Billion Trees" program. That's amazing!
If you don't have Fresh Direct in your area, it's basically if Whole Foods would deliver to your house (and they have prepared foods as well). But regardless, this concept of donating a tree would be an awesome IN LIEU of FAVOR idea... Or for the "tree hugging" couple (using that term with affection, btw) it would make a great little engagement gift!
