"Celebrate Austin Entrepreneurship Project" - Greenling

Mason Arnold has passion. He is a local entrepreneur who wants to build a business, serve his community and save the world. This is not a minor calling, it is his life's mission.

He is the man behind the local Austin fresh produce delivery company, Greenling. On the company's website his title is listed as "Cookie Monster". Mason is committed to preserving and conserving that which is essentially Austin. He promotes an Organic, sustainable community and believes we can achieve remarkable economic progress without sacrificing our health and the health of our environment. He believes we must better embrace sustainable living practices if we are to continue to prosper and has adopted a personal mantra for going green: "Nobody can do everything, but everybody can do something."

And Mason walks-the-walk by staying active in his community and sponsoring local events for the likes of Charity Partners of Austin, DonorsChoose.org, Keep Austin Beautiful, TOFGA, Capital Area Food Bank, and numerous local school fund-raisers. He is also an active member of the 2009 Leadership Austin Essentials Class.

Greenling is everything you ever wanted in a grocery company. They bring you Local food and Organic food fresher than you can get in the grocery store, for about the same price, delivered to your door for FREE! You can trust what you get from Greenling to be the best food anywhere.

Greenling buys from local farmers whenever possible. Buying locally is an important part of Sustainability. They visit local farms and get to know the people growing the food. They also investigate every company they deal with, local or non-local, to ensure they share the values of Organics and Sustainability.

The company and the team who work there are a great example of what makes Austin unique.

Have A Great Day.

thanks for writing about Greenling. I think they are a hell of an Austin company. Glad they exist!
