As I mentioned in March, ever since experiencing BlogHer Boston, I’ve been super excited to attend the big BlogHer meeting in Chicago this summer. And I’m enormously grateful to have not one (Boston-based firm 360 Public Relations, which I announced in March), but two companies sponsoring my trip. Thank you, Stonyfield Farm, for acting as my secondary sponsor for BlogHer Chicago! Please read on to learn about Stonyfield's impressive environmental initiatives, and a yummy but lesser known organic product they offer.
Most parents know about Stonyfield yogurts (as a baby, Laurel went berserk over their creamy full fat plain yogurt), but they also are tremendously committed to the environment. I was really impressed when I learned about their efforts and wanted to share them here:
And on the product end:
Stonyfield has a new product: Oikos Organic apparently is the only nationally distributed organic Greek yogurt on the market today. Greek yogurt is thicker in texture than regular yogurt because the whey (liquid) is strained off; the process makes the yogurt naturally richer in protein and lower in carbohydrates compared to regular yogurt. Oikos is certified organic, made with milk from farms that don’t use toxic persistent chemicals and fertilizers, antibiotics, or synthetic growth hormones, and it is free of artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners. Flavors include plain, blueberry, honey, vanilla, and strawberry. Yummy!
Thank you for your BlogHer Chicago '09 sponsorship!
