Vegging out for National Eat Your Vegetables Day!
It’s #NationalEatYourVeggiesDay, and you already know we’re here for it! We love all things fruits and veggies and truly believe in the power of plants. To help you veg out on this plant-powered holiday, we’ve teamed up with our friends and local Cali natives Imperfect Produce to share the love with our entire Suja fam! Today through 7/1/19 you can use the code “SUJAEATSUGLY” for 50% off your first Imperfect Produce order at checkout (which you can do here!). Imperfect Produce also wants to give one lucky veggie lover a $30 credit on their box as well as free shipping, and we're throwing in a box full of veggie packed juices (head to our Instagram to enter the giveaway by 6/20!). Because we believe the more you know the more you grow, here are a few quick facts about the nature of “ugly produce” in our country, and what Imperfect Produce is doing to help save the plants! According to Imperfect Produce’s website…
- 20 billion pounds of fruits and veggies go to waste on farms every year - usually because they don’t meet "cosmetic standards" of grocery stores
- Imperfect Produce has saved 40M pounds of food
- Imperfect Produce has donated 2.6 M pounds of food
