DONATE NATURALLY donatenaturally.com
While online shopping for fashion, books and music is booming, it's still pretty slim pickings when it comes to virtually grabbing your weekly groceries on the web. Toronto-based Donate Naturally is out to change that with a creative, healthful and philanthropic approach to stocking your fridge and pantry.
The e-store sells natural and organic fresh market fare, dry goods, skin care and household products (including its own line of Life Choices brand mac 'n' cheese and Grandview Farms organic beef, pork and poultry), delivering it all to doors in the GTA Tuesdays through Fridays. The charitable angle comes in at checkout when you get to choose from a lineup of organizations, local schools and institutions to which Donate Naturally will give 15 per cent of the value of your order.
Don't see your charity of choice on the site? Submit it and they'll add it to their growing list.
Donate Naturally picks: Sample an assorted organic beef box, which comes packed with steaks, ground meat, flat iron cuts and Life Choices hot dogs, $70; the beauty section includes a rainbow of Knocked Up nail polishes, $10; a special diet department includes dairy-free, gluten-free, kosher and vegan options like Amy's Kitchen organic soups, $3.99.
Look for: Friday pickup for cottage-bound shoppers at Vaughan Mills (1 Bass Pro Mills) between 2 and 6 pm.
