Plus: Chance to win an outdoor shopping spree and a year of free Organic Girl Greens
Guest Editorial Submitted by Tops Friendly Markets
While the rest of the world may be struggling to keep up with their New Year’s resolutions just a few weeks after they started them, you can proudly say you’re still on track, thanks to the abundance of resources right at your fingertips at your local Tops Friendly Markets.
You see, resolutions don’t always have to be about giving up something so much as they can be about trying something new, or sticking to a more positive, healthy lifestyle habit. If we learned anything from our adjusted way of living since the pandemic, it is that self-care should be made a priority and one we want to keep – and that is made easier thanks to Tops.
Tops offers over 4,000 natural and organic offerings that you will find in every aisle in addition to the convenience of being able to shop online at the Tops Natural and Organics Market (www.Topsorganics.com) where you will find thousands of certified organic, gluten-free, and minimally processed products all in one place. From your favorite national brands to our own Full Circle brand of organics, these wholesome, earth-friendly products are all grouped together in one place for your convenience at our online store. We believe that the simpler the ingredients, the closer to nature they are, the easier it is to choose what's best for you and your family as you’re making this lifestyle shift.
We also pride ourselves in having the freshest produce brought to you straight from your local growers, of which we work with over 200 local farmers. We are a proud supporter of product grown by New York state farmers who adhere to the New York State Grown and Certified program’s requirements, which includes verification of safe food handling practices and participation in environmental sustainability programs, which ensures you have the freshest and safest farm-to-table products for your family.
But we’re also proud to work with growers and vendors outside of our region like Soli Organic, Good ‘n Healthy, Josie’s Organic, Organic Girl and Remedy Organic Juices, to name a few, who all offer great solutions to your healthier New Year’s resolutions all while caring about the environment. These companies truly have made a commitment to not only providing an array of healthy options from leafy greens, vegetables, and salad dressing to gluten- and dairy-free probiotic juices, but also discovered innovative ways to produce these delicious, healthy products year-round (in some instances) with a focus on sustainability.
“We love partnering with all of our brands, but especially brands like Organic Girl for their commitment to providing USDA-certified 100% organic products along with their dedication to environmentally responsible packaging,” said Jeff Cady, director of produce and floral for Tops Friendly Markets. “All of their salad clamshells are made of 100% recycled plastic and are 100% recyclable, which is right in line with Tops sustainability practices.”
Having trouble sticking to that resolution? Don’t fret! Our partners at Organic Girl are offering a $1,000 outdoor shopping spree and a year of free organic girl greens to help keep you motivated on your goals! Plus 17 more lucky winners will win organic girl greens for one year plus some great swag. For details, visit https://bit.ly/3qbfJ2z.
