How we deliver your order?

TheVillageGreenShop continually strives to make its operations as simple and environmentally friendly as possible.           Customers’ orders are clustered per area  and assign a delivery day so it gets delivered efficiently.  We help reduce carbon dioxide emissions by ferrying goods via bike for small orders while big and group orders  are delivered by small vehicle filled to capacity.  Also some clients who pick up their orders from our base, volunteer to deliver orders of friends and even strangers if its convenient for them! And we are happy to take a percentage off their bill.

Low carbon delivery for small items. Biker  passing along our Pasig base picks our items for delivery!

Zero carbon delivery for small items. Pedal power is renewable energy. Biker passing along our  office in Pasig and heading towards the clients’ area picks items for delivery to a client!

As soon as you sign up we will let you know if we have an existing delivery in your community. If we do not yet deliver in your neighbourhood, we encourage you to sign up and or subscribe anyway and let your friends know about our organic delivery service.  Your community may be the next expansion for The VillageGreenShop.

Why do we encourage people to subscribe and buy as a community? Simply because an individual doesn’t make as much savings or impact as a community. As we are a low carbon food distribution system, we aim to reduce carbon emission with you if by the same amount of fuel in transporting these items we deliver to as many people in one location each time! The savings we don’t keep but is passed on to you as discount according to volume/frequency of orders each community makes!

 Delivery to your workplace. If you would like your order delivered to your workplace, let us know by contacting us at

Why raw milk is a complete food?

We researched a bit why milk , we mean raw milk is nutritious and important to our diet and here’s the amazing fact that we have discovered –

milk imageRaw milk is loaded with good protein, something that most of us are lacking in our bodies these days thanks to the degeneration of our foods. Raw milk contains immunoglobulins, an extremely complex class of milk proteins also known as anti-bodies. They provide resistance too many viruses, bacteria and bacterial toxins and may help reduce the severity of asthma symptoms. Raw milk contains lactic acid. Lactic acid boosts the absorption of calcium, phosphorus and iron in your body.

Raw milk contains fat that your body needs; you also need this for your digestion system to work properly. Did you know that fat free homogenized milk lacks the hormone that your stomach needs to tell you when you are full? That’s right, drinking fat free store bought milk can actually contribute to obesity. Raw milk contains this hormone in the fat that is in the milk. Did you know that babies that cannot drink regular milk can drink raw cow’s milk?

And did you know that babies that are colic are so because of the formula they are drinking. Babies that are colic and allergic to baby formulas can usually drink raw cow’s milk too. CLA, short for conjugated linoleic acid and abundant in milk from grass-fed cows, is a heavily studied, polyunsaturated Omega-6 fatty acid with promising health benefits. Grass fed cows has 3-5 times the amount found in cows fed from a feed lot. What is so important about CLA’s?

The potential benefits: it raises metabolic rate, helps remove abdominal fat, boosts muscle growth, reduces resistance to insulin, strengthens the immune system and lowers food allergy reactions. Now how many of us could use more CLA’s in our diet? The vitamin content in raw milk is untouched, nothing needs to be added to raw milk to make it good for you, in store bought milk without adding all the vitamins and minerals you would have nothing but a chemical drink that would probably kill you, raw milk is a complete food.

Since raw milk is so easy for our bodies to digest it takes the load off of the pancreas and other organs involved in the digestive process. The beneficial good bacterium that is found in raw milk is like taking a huge dose of vitamins and getting instantly well. Probiotics are what most of the world is lacking in their stomachs, so much that we have to take supplements such as the popular Acidophilus just to combat heart burn, digestion and acid reflux. You heard right, acid reflux is contributed to by the diet we are on.

The foods we eat are deficient of the good bacteria, vitamins and minerals we need to function properly. It’s not “normal” to have acid reflux and heart burn. It’s just that today’s society has accepted it and therefore knows no better or different way of living. Raw milk therefore provides a necessary ingredient to our digestive systems.

Raw milk is available at TheVillageGreenShop!

Mouth and body connection

Our passion for organic living has gone beyond the borders of our local community but far and wide as technology enables us to reach out to like-minded individuals and organizations who not only share our vision to promote sustainable lifestyle and passion for eating fresh, seasonal and organic food but allow us to discover other people’s world and learn from them too. The encouraging words of Dr Diane Meyer, a holistic dentist is more than a pat on our back (we are grateful for that!) as we got enlightened that good health starts from the mouth.

We wish there is someone like her in the Philippines that ensures that mouth and body connection is critical to our overall wellness.

We would like to share her site to everyone so you can find out more about your own overall wellness at http://www.holisticdentistillinois.com).

Cheers.

Our hot product this week!

Each week TheVillageGreenShop shares with you what you bought from us most.  This week we are delighted to tell you that our “green” milk which is our fresh cow’s milk is our hot product this week! We sold milk and probiotic drink more than any other food items in our shelves. Some weeks you bought more brown rice, salad greens, and native chicken. But last week you wanted fresh cow’s milk than any other food!

It is not surprising indeed why milk should be part of our everyday food. It is a complete and balanced food in itself which gives us all the nourishment we need.milk

Before we introduced milk into our food basket, we ask our loyal subscribers if they would want this product in their weekly food basket and if they are willing to shift to this type of milk. Surprisingly even before we thought we could if we offer it to them we sold a bucketful of litres!

And why should we encourage you to drink our fresh cow’s milk? TheVillageGreenShop offers you fresh unadulterated milk from grass-fed or organic cows hence you are guaranteed that you drink milk with zero antibiotics, zero steroids and zero growth hormones. It is so pure you can taste the difference contrasted with those milk in cans and cartons in your grocery shops which are added of sugar and contains chemicals and medicines that was transferred to your milk when it was milked from a NOT organic cow. Why do they have to inject those harmful chemicals to cows? In order to pull on a cheaper price and collect bigger profits, cows must grow bigger and produce bigger milk output at the expense of unwary consumers.milk in carton
