Stonyfield Rewards Program Features Hope For Women!

28 Jun

I grew up eating Stonyfield Farm organic products. Between my brother’s constant appetite and my enthusiasm for everything dairy, our fridge almost always housed a quart or two of Stonyfield yogurt. We felt good about supporting a business committed to quality products as well as community outreach and environmental efforts. Growing up in Vermont, I also smiled to know that much of the dairy used to create my favorite yogurts came from farms in my own state.

Many of the same values that I admired in Stonyfield Farm I also see in the work of Hope For Women. At Hope For Women, we, too, are committed to creating products that our customers love and can feel proud to purchase, because all of our products are made with environmentally sustainable materials and through fair business practices.

Thus, it feels natural to announce a new connection between these two great companies. Stonyfield Farm is featuring Hope For Women in their “myStonyfield Rewards” program, so now you can get free Hope For Women note cards simply by eating Stonyfield Farm products. Not only does your participation support Stonyfield and Hope For Women, but it also supports all of our artisans in India who create beautiful pressed-flower cards that are tree-free, non-toxic, recycled, and recyclable!

It’s that simple.
