Does This Salad Frustration Make You Crazy? Here's An Easy Fix

I am currently typing this while standing in Microsoft's main office in Seattle, and its campus is amazing. Seriously: It has soccer fields, lunchtime ultimate frisbee games, running trails, restaurant options galore, its own post office, a pet store (?!), and about a hundred other cool things that made my jaw drop to the floor. It also has hydroponically growing, hyper-fresh salad leaves that are plucked straight off the root the second you want to eat them. Going to its salad bar today for lunch made me feel even more sad about the soggy, slightly brown leaves that I am used to seeing at my local grocery store.

While I probably won't ever get to work on a company campus like this anywhere in NYC, I don't have to be jealous of the Microsoft cafeteria's salad leaves, thanks to Radicle Farm Company. The brand's space-efficient, recyclable containers grow lettuce varietals with only a small amount of water — and keep the leaves fresh and vibrant for up to two weeks! Gone are the days where I buy my week's supply of greens, only to forget about them and find them shriveled and sad in my fridge (a waste of food and money).

Radicle Farm containers cost $3.99, are currently sold at all Whole Foods in Manhattan and New Jersey , and are also available for purchase on FreshDirect. I'm sure we'll be seeing them roll out nationwide soon — who doesn't need this?
