Today: National Plant a Seed Day Celebration

 

Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE: CMG), announced that its exclusive “Home Grown Chipotle” boxes will be available for purchase online here for a limited time starting today, March 20, on National Plant a Seed Day. Each Home Grown Chipotle box includes seeds, supplies and instructions for six vegetables integral to Chipotle’s menu: cilantro, tomato, pinto beans, jalapeño pepper, bell pepper and onion.

Committed to sourcing locally, Chipotle proudly purchased 29 million pounds of produce from local growers in 2018 alone and encourages consumers to test their own farming abilities at home. Whether your backyard is a sliver of sunshine on a windowsill or a plot of grass off a patio, the Home Grown Chipotle boxes provide an opportunity to interact with the brand in a new and hands-on manner.

“One of the things that makes Chipotle so unique is the dedication we have to real ingredients that are prepared fresh daily and sourced responsibly,” said Caitlin Leibert, Sustainability Director at Chipotle. “We believe a strong connection to where your food comes from, and how it was raised, helps create a healthier lifestyle and ultimately, cultivates a better world. The Home Grown Chipotle boxes are perfect for Plant a Seed Day and represent what is celebrated in our restaurants daily.”

All proceeds from Home Grown Chipotle sales will be donated to Big Green, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that aims to build a healthier future for kids by connecting them to real food through a nationwide network of Learning Gardens and food literacy programs. Chipotle will also be hosting local fundraisers tomorrow in the seven markets where Big Green works: Chicago, Denver, Detroit, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Memphis, and Pittsburgh. 33% of all proceeds from customers who mention the fundraiser when dining at a Chipotle in these markets will go directly to Big Green.

Chipotle’s involvement with National Plant a Seed Day follows the launch of its latest menu innovation, Plant-Powered Vegan and Vegetarian bowls. Additionally, “Behind the Foil,” the brand’s most recent ad campaign focuses on the transparency of its kitchens, real ingredients, farming partners and the culinary skills of its employees.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
