I interrupt my pregnancy whining and complaining to bring you this sponsored post…

Did you know that Odwalla (who, in my opinion, has awesome smoothies and protein bars) is funding 100,000 trees?

From Odwalla’s site:

Odwalla is teaming up with The Nature Conservancy’s All Hands on Earth campaign to plant up to 100,000 trees through 2013 in cities and towns across the country.

Why trees? Because clean water, healthy soil, and fresh air are the not-so-secret ingredients that make our beverages and bars as good as they are. And nothing nourishes these elements more than trees. They’re like nature’s caretakers, and we’re delighted to show the world just how much good a few little seeds can do.


Who doesn’t like trees? Sure, their pollen can be annoying at times (I’m talking about you Oak) – but we could all use more trees and in our lives. As a runner, trees are NECESSARY – especially in the hot, hot Florida sun and during a long run. You better believe if I’m running while the sun is up, there are a bajillion trees on my running route.

The best part is that if you go to their site and create a tree (like mine below), they will plant a real tree in your honor. Without making you get dirty. Or do any digging. Or watering. (I have a black thumb, so this is all pretty alluring to me)


My tree. I’m obviously VERY VERY talented at dragging and dropping.

Creating a tree takes minutes and involves absolutely zero creativity (which again, is good for this girl!) and can temporarily take your mind off of things (like how you are never, ever, ever going to go into labor). 

Even better? If you create a tree you are automatically entered into a giveaway for a $10,000 gift card and a year’s supply of Odwalla beverages and bars. Oh, and they’ll send you a coupon. Everyone is a winner!

Here are some more details!

Between March 20, 2013 and May 31, 2013, Odwalla will contribute $1 for each tree you
create to The Nature Conservancy for the planting of trees– no less than $75,000 and
up to $100,000. The mission of The Nature Conservancy is to conserve the land and
waters on which all life depends. More information about the Conservancy is available
by mail at 4245 N. Fairfax Drive, Arlington, Virginia 22203, by phone at (800) 628-6860
or at

So what are you waiting for? Go get digitally “creative” and plant a tree!
