With the approach of fall comes one of the most anticipated holidays for children and adults of all ages; Halloween. Children dream about the costumes they’ll wear, the doors they’ll knock on, and the candies they’ll collect. Parents worry about walking for hours with their little ones, cavities, and the cost of the costumes their children dream about. But this year, Stonyfield Yogurt can help, at least with the costume portion of the holiday.
This Saturday, October 13, 2012, the Stonyfield Visitors Center in Londonderry will be hosting a costume swap. The concept is simple, bring a slightly used and clean costume to the visitors center and get a different, slightly used and clean costume for your children. Drop off your costume at the Visitors Center before October 12th and you’ll be eligible for the “early-bird swap” from 10 AM to 11 AM.
There will be fun stuff for the whole family like… Halloween Costume Swap, Games, Giveaways, Touch-A-Truck (weather permitting) and lots of delicious Yogurt!
Stonyfield believes in protecting the earth. The costume swap promotes a Green Halloween. If half the costumes kids wear on Halloween were swapped, we’d reduce annual landfill waste by 6,250 tons. That’s the same weight as 2,500 midsize cars. Swapping costumes is also a great way to spend less on Halloween.
Join the Stonyfield Visitors Center in celebrating fall this Saturday. The costume swap and festival will be held from 11 AM until 1 PM at the visitors center located at 10 Burton Drive here in Londonderry. For more information and directions to the center, click here!
Stonyfield Yogurt began as a farming school in Wilton, New Hampshire in 1983 with the goals of helping family farms survive and protect the environment. At first, yogurt was sold to help fund the school, which had a leaky barn and just a few Jersey cows. The founders, Samuel Kaymen and Gary Hirshberg, current CE-Yo, did most of work milking cows, making yogurt and sales calls and delivering the yogurt.
