Organic pioneer announces first 10 of 35 communities across the country teaming up with the brand to convert outdoor fields and parks to organic management; Access to expert and financial resources through a new community donation program now open for applications

Londonderry, NH - September 12, 2018 – Stonyfield Organic, the country’s leading organic yogurt maker, today announces the first 10 communities selected for its StonyFIELDS #PlayFree initiative which will help convert public fields and parks to organic grounds management, ensuring fields and community spaces are free from the use of toxic persistent pesticides and harmful chemicals. This is especially important for children, who are most vulnerable to pesticides. The initiative comes at a critical time as awareness for glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto’s Round-Up weed killer and an identified “probable carcinogen” or cancer-causing substance by the World Health Organization’s Cancer Agency, IARC, is finally getting the critical attention it deserves.

“Over 26 million kids play on parks and fields, most of which are managed using a chemical cocktail of herbicides, insecticides, and fungicides, glyphosate being one of those commonly employed,” says Stonyfield co-founder and Chief Organic Optimist Gary Hirshberg.  “Unfortunately, the federal agencies in charge of protecting us from dangers like these are now being dismantled right before our eyes, so we feel the time is right to lend our voice to this critical issue and inspire everyone to become advocates and change agents for the health of their loved ones.”

South Portland, ME, the inaugural community, is beginning organic management work at its beloved Bug Light field and will celebrate with a town Field Day on September 29. The full list of the first 10 communities that plan to team up with Stonyfield over the next year includes the following:

  • South Portland, ME
  • Costa Mesa, CA
  • Burbank, CA
  • Tustin, CA
  • Salt Lake City, UT
  • Houston, TX
  • North Miami, FL
  • Hyattsville, MD
  • Portsmouth, NH
  • Dover, NH

“South Portland recently enacted an ordinance to establish organic practices as the primary means to care for and maintain property in the city including lawns, gardens, athletic fields, parks, and playgrounds,” said Julie Rosenbach, Sustainability Director in South Portland. “In this endeavor, we are proud to be working with Stonyfield to improve the grounds at one of our most beautiful parks. Although we do not use pesticides at this site, we have not actively managed the park’s grounds beyond mowing. Our goal with this collaboration is to build the soil health and cultivate a greener, more resilient landscape using organic practices. As I’ve heard it said, when it comes to organic land care, ‘it’s not what you don’t do, it’s what you do do,’ she added.”

Several of the cities Stonyfield is supporting have already begun organic management practices on their parks and fields, and Stonyfield is honored to support and celebrate the work they’ve done by providing extra seed funding and on-going technical support as they move forward with their organic programs.

Furthering its longstanding mission, the brand is also announcing two donation programs – a community donation and a grassroots donation - to help other communities across the country make the conversion to organic field management.  Stonyfield’s ten community donations will provide towns with $5,000 in cash to use towards the purchase of organic inputs and/or landscaping equipment needed for organic management, plus in-kind technical support and guidance from expert resources. Residents, town employees, or town elected officials can nominate their community to receive one of these donations, and those interested in applying can find application details here.

In addition, a grassroots donations program has been established that is geared toward 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations looking to take their community organization to the next level. For this part of the program specifically, a total of $50,000 will be given out to 501 (c)(3) groups based on project proposals.  Interested applicants can find details on the grassroots donations here. All selected applicants from both donation programs will be announced in April 2019.

The StonyFields #PlayFree initiative launches as Stonyfield celebrates its 35th year, and deepens the activist brand’s commitment to issues beyond the food aisle by shedding light on an often overlooked issue. In a recent survey*, Stonyfield found that the majority of American parents (69%) are looking to lessen exposure to pesticides in food, yet nearly the same number (67%) do not consider sports fields, playgrounds and parks to be of concern. Stonyfield is eager to bring attention to this issue by empowering everyone to make change locally to protect the health of children and the environment.

“Several of the most commonly used chemicals on playing fields are either proven or likely endocrine disruptors, which can interfere with the development of children’s immune, reproductive, and metabolic systems,” says Philip Landrigan, MD, MSc, Founding Director of the Children’s Environmental Health Center at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York and author of the book Children and Environmental Toxins: What Everyone Needs to Know. “I applaud Stonyfield and its collaborators for this initiative and encourage all parents to get involved in their local communities.”

Conversion to a toxic persistent pesticide-free and organically managed space can take up to three years and is a process that has repeatedly been proven both successful and cost effective. The adoption of organic soil management practices builds soil biology, prevents weed and insect problems, and contributes to healthy plants and ecosystems. Over 70 communities around the country have begun the process of transitioning their playing fields to organic management, or taken the first step of eliminating certain toxic persistent pesticides from their management routine. Stonyfield is collaborating with three organizations that are leaders in this movement: Beyond Pesticides, Non Toxic Neighborhoods, and Osborne Organics, to help with conversions, support communities as they transition and to provide inspiration and resources to concerned parents everywhere with resource guides on the Stonyfield website. In addition, each community that is part of the program receives a monetary donation to be used toward the conversion.

Stonyfields Hero Image

If you haven’t heard yet - we are taking on our BIGGEST MISSION ever: Making every field in America ORGANIC by stopping the use of harmful pesticides on youth playing fields and public parks! This back to school season, we will be taking this mission one step further - by increasing our original financial commitment of $500,000 to help communities start grassroots (no pun intended - well maybe a little bit) efforts to create change.

With the purchase of ANY Stonyfield Kids or YoBaby Multipack* a contribution will be made, up to $50,000, to help even more communities transitioning to organic field maintenance.

Over 26MM kids play sports on public grounds each year.  Did you also know that every year, a chemical cocktail of pesticides is sprayed on a majority of these fields – just to make the grass greener & free of weeds? Yup - It’s a lot to take in...we know...especially given the news of the recent Dewayne Johnson vs Monsanto court ruling.

We don’t think our kids should be exposed to these chemicals - frankly we don’t think anyone should be exposed to them. We want everyone to have safe playing fields & parks free of harmful pesticides just as much as we want everyone to have clean and organic food. We need to protect ourselves & our environment from these toxic chemicals - and we need get loud about it.

SO what can you do to help? Good question! You can do SO MUCH. Find out your community’s pesticide use policy on public fields and grounds by contacting your local officials. You may be surprised what you find out. You can also search your community online to see if there are any groups formed to help take-on the initiative to make the change. These groups are commonly found on Facebook or even through your local PTO.  You can also transition your own yard or garden to organic maintenance with these helpful tips (ps it’s super easy)!  One small step to helping communities nationwide today, is to buy a Stonyfield Kids or Stonyfield YoBaby Multipack!

We believe that we can do this! So welcome to the movement - we appreciate the support and enthusiasm as we bring communities together for a cause that will help all of us. Keep reading more at stonyfield.com/playfree  

Join us to #PlayFree

* From 8/19 to 9/01/18, Stonyfield Organic will contribute $.05 for each Kids and YoBaby Multipack - Cups 4oz 6-Pk, Tubes 2oz 8 & 16-Pk, Drinks 3.1oz 6 & 12-Pk and Pouches 3.5oz 4-Pk. $50,000 will be based on IRI MULO data.

5 Ways to Use Two Ingredient Dough

On the rare occasion that I had nothing to do on a college weekend (way back when), I used to take the bus to the next town over to indulge in pizza and garlic knots as a treat to myself. I never had garlic knots before this stage in my life, and the combination of buttery garlic with Italian spices melted over these little dough knots was enlightening. I left garlic knots in college, but recently they’ve come back into my life when I encountered Stonyfield’s two-ingredient dough!

This dough not only makes garlic knots (thank you magic dough gods!) but also makes a crazy amount of other recipes that normally take a long time to make. With just self-rising flour and some Stonyfield Whole Milk Greek Yogurt, you can have this dough ready in under 10 minutes to make things like, Baked Sea Salt Pretzels, Pizza, Bagels, Cheesy Breadsticks and more!

This yogurt dough not only cuts out a lot of calories that may have left you feeling over indulged, it also cuts prep time in HALF! So you won’t feel guilty about grabbing another slice, or another knot to dunk in marinara sauce (yum).

If you are skeptical about this two ingredient recipe – try it for yourself, you won’t regret it!

Baked Sea Salt Pretzels

Bring these out for snack time with friends or to a party as a surprise savory treat and add a side of Spicy Brown Mustard or Honey Mustard to dip them in.
