A recap of StonyFIELD Day in East Grand Rapids, Michigan, part of Stonyfield’s Play Free initiative.
One of my first and longest running clients, Stonyfield, launched an incredible campaign last year that recently became more personal than ever!
StonyFIELDS is, in fact, their biggest mission to date! Starting in 2018, Stonyfield has been working with communities across America and experts in the field to make all fields ORGANIC by stopping the use of harmful pesticides on playing fields.
Their goal is simple: help communities across America take the necessary steps to convert to organic field maintenance and empower families everywhere by providing tools and resources to make change locally and in your own backyard.
Why is this now personal? My home town of East Grand Rapids was recently selected as one of their partnering communities!
To celebrate, my friends from Stonyfield came to East Grand Rapids to throw a free event for the entire community: StonyFIELD Day!
The perfect excuse for a family outing, I grabbed all three of my boys for an afternoon of music, games, snacks and learning.
The reason for the mission? Stonyfield has cared about the organic fields where their cows graze and the fields where their fruits and veggies grow for over 35 years.
Now that commitment is extended to new fields: the playing fields. Not just any playing fields, the exact playing fields where my kids play every single day!
Of course, my boys are just one of 26 million kids who play sports on fields, 65% of which are sprayed with harmful pesticides.
Thanks to Stonyfield, it’s now time for change.

In the meantime, from the bottom of my heart, thank you Stonyfield for partnering with East Grand Rapids for this important initiative. We are so grateful for the opportunity to do better and lead by example for future generations to come.
