Make Earth Day EVERY Day with Wild Oats!
Yes, Earth Day is April 22nd. But does your family really have to wait for Earth Day to make changes in the way you eat and live? One way our family is celebrating Earth Day everyday is by adding more organic foods into our diet. During the summer, we eat our own organic veggies from the garden. Even during the winter months, you can get great organic foods at Walmart. Don’t just look in the produce section, look for Wild Oats on the shelves too!
Some kids (and adults) don’t know the difference between a lettuce plant and a tomato plant. It is really sad. Ever since my son was old enough to play in the dirt, we have had him helping in our garden. Other than the fun of playing in the dirt, he has learned about the importance of keeping our Earth an amazing place to live. He learned about seeds, growing organically, and eating these amazing veggies that HE helped grow! We only use Heirloom seeds in our gardens. In fact, my little sister and her family gave us some of their Heirloom seeds for Christmas one year. At the time, I didn’t realize what a great gift it was. By using and preserving these seeds, we are actually helping EVERYONE by increasing food variety for years to come!
At my son’s school, they sell Heirloom seeds from Fedco as a fundraiser in the spring. Fedco is your source for cold-hardy selections especially adapted to our demanding Northeast climate. Each year we observe hundreds of varieties, selecting only the best for inclusion in our catalogs. Through our product lines and cultural hints, we encourage sustainable growing methods. We offer a large selection of certified-organic cultivars and regional heirloom varieties. One of his teachers has made a huge impact in many students’ ways of thinking. In fact, one of his friends won’t wear jeans because it takes too many gallons of water to make one pair.
Where does Wild Oats fit in? Wild Oats is available for everyone due to their reasonably priced Organic Foods available at Walmart. You can also take comfort and pride in knowing that Wild Oats organically grown foods help and create a more sustainable way with food production. This reduces your environmental footprint. What a great lesson to teach your children to help Mother Earth last for generations to come.
With the milestone of Wild Oats one-year anniversary with Walmart, you can celebrate by picking up organic goodness at YOUR local Walmart!
