Stonyfield has my vote and one lucky winner will get $50 in free yogurt!!!

You might not know this but I’m actually a maize and blue fan, verses a green fan! Go WOLVERINES!!! This actually ties into my post because an outstanding company you know as Stonyfield Farm (no “e” after “n” or before “y”… I can spell) works with the University of Michigan’s Center for Sustainable Systems to provide the best packaging they can. Go blue and go Stonyfield because what they discovered is unbelievable and they took the time and money to figure it out. How many companies really do that? Um…not enough. Not only is the yogurt organic but it’s in safe plastic*, you can recycle the containers (I literally just dug one out of the garbage) and if you don’t have a recycle center near you, clean it out and they’ll recycle it! Soon we might even have a yogurt cup made out of corn and beets…now that is sassy! I am telling you all of this because most people just go to the grocery store and look for the yogurt, milk or ice cream on sale but what they don’t get is, you’re purchase votes for a company. The more times you buy from that company the more votes you give it and the more times you tell that grocer…buy from Stonyfield! Why support and vote for Stonyfield, Green and Clean Mom, this isn’t an election? Isn’t it? I’m thinking, if the yogurt and milk brands could talk, it might be worse that Hilary and Obama! I won’t weigh in on Hilary and Obama but I’ll tell you why to vote Stonyfield….

  • When you buy Stonyfiled you support organic farmers that use certified organic practices and actually care about the animals, earth and people…not just the green buck behind it all. I really urge you to watch this video about life on a farm.
  • Stonyfield gives away 10% of their profits to educational organizations across the country ($1,947,109 in 2007) to support the environment and organic program. Organizations like Ecologyfund.com or Pesticide Action Network North America, to name a few.
  • Stonyfield yogurt is organic and that means your children don’t have to eat yogurt, drink milk, have an ice cream treat and be eating hormones, artificial flavors, gelatin and unnecessary sugar or anything for that matter.
  • Stonyfield loves their cows. I love cows. I think they’re cute. I don’t like their poop or methane stuff but I’m sure they don’t like mine either! I can even have-a-cow and not really have one in my living room or yard. I can expose my kiddos to life on a farm and have them virtually meet and learn about a cow of our choice. A program that started in 1989…yeah…a long time ago folks and it’s still around! So get on board and have-a-cow!!!
  • Stonyfield is trying to help make over vending machines in schools!!! Yes! Yes! Yes!
  • Stonyfield is willing to donate $20,000 to Every Count Click, an environmental works group to keep nasty chemicals out of our food, and all you have to do is go to this website and click: http://www.yobabyyogurt.com/donation
  • Stonyfield is part of a collaborative effort to offer a report card to rate companies on what they are doing to make a difference when it comes to being green and treading lighter on Mother Earth. You, as a consumer, can go to: http://www.climatecounts.org/ and learn more about what companies you buy from are doing to make a difference. Maybe you won’t want to vote for them anymore until they start doing a little better and score higher! Think about it, consumers with power…what will the world be like then?
  • Okay, last but not least…my kids and family love the stuff so if all of the above isn’t enough reason to vote Stonyfield, I’m not sure what is.

We have sampled a wide array of Stonyfield products in the last week or so. I love the After Dark Chocolate (must confess I ate almost all of it in one night). My son fills up on the Wild berry Stonyfield Smoothie but personally, I’m not a fan of it. We all have different taste buds and I’m not the Wild berry girl. Oh, and he asks for a strawberry squeezable yogurt that we freeze, almost nightly! My daughter loves the Yobaby smoothie because she learned to drink out of a straw and thinks she’s super cool. All flavors get her approval (yes, we’ve tried them all)! I was a skeptic on the milk because I’ve been turned on to the glass bottle, local farm milk and remember, I don’t like milk. Well, I have to say…Stonyfield you rock with this one! So many flavors, variety and stuff to try so how about I let you do the rest/

It is not a contest but a C-E-L-E-B-R-A-T-I-O-N!!! One, Stonyfield wins my election on organic milk products (milk, yogurt, icecream) verses the yucky hormone, artifical color, bad stuff. Two, they’re turning 25 years old! I want to turn 25 again! Enough pouting, let’s have a Green & Clean Mom celebration and giveaway a whoppin prize!! Fifty dollars in Stonyfield YoBaby and YoMommy yogurt coupons. Yahooo!!! Want to win??? You don’t have to be a blogger either!

*Here’s what Stonyfield had to say about BPA plastic and their containers…

Thanks for your inquiry about our packaging and specifically our use of polystyrene #6 for our YoBaby products.

First, none of our packaging contains BPA, the chemical currently in the news and which is used to make polycarbonate plastic and epoxy resins.

As for our use of polystyrene #6, you’ll be reassured to learn that #6 containers are considered safe for food use by the both the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the European Union (EU). The FDA requires the styrene content of the packaging be less than 5,000 parts per million (ppm). The styrene content in Stonyfield Farm’s polystyrene packaging does not exceed 400 ppm.

    WOW – great post !!! I use their milk all the time for my girls AND I have always used their yogurt for them. I use the yobaby for my first and the yosoy for my second (she is lactose intolerant).
    i clicked the baby to donate.

    the only problem i find is that i have to go to whole foods to get the yosoy – if you have any pull….let stonyfield know they need to get it in more stores !!!

    thanks for this very educational post.

  • Green & Clean Mom

    I don’t have any pull but I’m sure that they’re reading all the comments…great market research! I’d love for some organic cottage cheese! I have to hop around for the variety in my town. It’s worth it though!

  • Casey H

    Love yobaby!! I used it with my daughter and plan on using it with baby #2 due in august! She always loved the vanilla!

    I went to the site too and entered my email to donate!

  • greenly

    My husband usually makes our yogurt, but when he doesn’t get around to it, we always buy Stonyfield. I love that they make kids’ yogurt in tubes (goes over well for school lunches). And it may be boring, but my favorite is vanilla. Great giveaway!

    I did number 3 and helped Stonyfield donate.

    I like all the flavors, but my favorite would probably be raspberry.

  • idahomom

    It is a toss up between peach and raspberry. Thanks for the chance.

  • Suz

    stonyfield is by far my favorite organic milk/yogurt brand (and i love that i can get coupons from their site too!) my fave is the banilla yogurt but the kids love a homemade smoothie (half strawberry yogurt and half plain yogurt plus milk…great b/c it works in the sippy cups!). the tubes in the freezer are great for teething babies…just wish i could figure out how to do it myself in a reusable container.
    i also entered my email to donate on their site.
    i tried to get a picture but they gobble up the yogurt so fast i missed it!

    thanks for having so many great contests! hope to win one sometime :)

    I’ve only used their yogurt–my favorite flavor is apricot. I really like the picture of the cow on the Strawberry Fields and French Vanilla containers, though. It helps make eating the yogurt even more fun! Thank you for the contest!

  • mgster

  • Sarah C

    I’m excited to try the Yomommy yogurt. I’ll be nursing for a while yet and I could use all the healthy snacks I can get my hands on. I haven’t tried yobaby yet but my little girl will be more than ready for it in just a few weeks.

    I clicked on the site to donate, too!

  • pauline15

    Yobaby is not easy to find in my area but I’ve purchased it a few times. In my family it’s either strawberry or strawberry-banana. And we love the taste. I hope that you expand your distribution of your fine yogurt in my area.

  • lamamanaturale

    Please count me in for this GREAT giveaway! Thanks.

    Stoneyfield is great! I like their vanilla yogurt best, especially when mixed in granola. Yummy!

  • Michelle

    I loooooooove Stonyfield! I use it all the time to top my homemade granola (plain or vanilla for me, thanks!).

    If I’m eating it by itself, my favorite is caramel, peach and/or mocha latte, depending on my mood. Mmmm! And it’s healthy, too!

    Oh yeah, and the baby is officially up to $3,530!

    Both my kids loooove YoBaby and used to eat it all the time, but now I have them eating the grown up kind. So cute when they steal bites from my yogurt and granola and then ask for their own!
