Celebrate Earth Day April 15 at Stop & Shop Hingham

Earth DayCelebrate Earth Day early!

Stop & Shop and Ben & Jerry’s are teaming up on April 15th from 11:00 am to 2 pm to raise awareness about climate change, focus on environment stewardship and encourage customers to be part of the solution by using reusable bags and reducing waste.

As part of the effort, you can celebrate the “First Taste of Summer” Ice Cream social at the Hingham Stop & Shop (400 Lincoln Street) on Wednesday, April 15th from 11 to 2 pm in the store’s parking lot.  Everyone is invited!

  • Hear Co-Founder Jerry Greenfield of Ben & Jerry’s live and in action discussing climate change
  • Enjoy a FREE SCOOP of favorite Ben & Jerry’s flavors from 11-2 pm along with a DJ and giveaways

For more than 40 years, Earth Day, April 22, has helped to mobilize the environmental movement and promote green policies at home and all over the world. As a responsible retailer, The Stop & Shop Supermarket Company LLC has a long track record of looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint and help customers go green on Earth Day and every day.

“This event will raise awareness about the importance of taking small steps to protect the environment. An easy way to reduce the impact of too many plastic bags ending up in landfills and waterways is to encourage our customers to bring their reusable bags with them each time they shop,” said Jihad Rizkallah, Vice President of Responsible Retailing. “These bags are environmentally friendly, larger and fit more groceries than a traditional plastic grocery bag.”

“At Ben & Jerry’s we are asking people to get involved in the climate movement by joining Avaaz.org, a global web movement that brings people-powered politics to decision-making everywhere, and calling on world leaders to support a transition to 100% clean energy.” said Jerry Greenfield, co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s. “We are happy and proud to support Stop & Shop and their customers on their Earth Day efforts.”

Jerry Greenfield will speak at noon to customers and associates in the store parking lot. Shopper can enjoy music as DJ Lisa from WXKS-FM will be spinning tunes along with another DJ as well. Giveaways will be handed out and free Ben & Jerry’s ice cream scoops will be available.

Here are 4 fun tips for celebrating Valentine’s Day with your family.95.9 WATD

1.  Crafts!  

Get out the glitter, get out the glue.  Valentine’s Day is the best holiday for crafts with kids.  You could spring for the boxed cards from the super market, but it’s way more fun to create homemade valentines.  Use magic markers, colored paper, stickers, glitter and glue to create one of a kind Valentines.  Get your supplies today, so you have every thing you need to work on the project over the weekend during the blizzard.  Don’t forget to make cards for your favorite teachers, crossing guards and other special people in your kids’ lives.

2.  Kick off Valentine’s Day Week with Pink Pancakes

We talk a lot about cooking on MommaJam.  This idea is from Tara Hollander of Doorknock Dinner, a company in Norwell that makes homemade meals and delivers them to your door step.

Tara suggests getting creative in the kitchen with your kids by make pink heart-shaped pancakes on the griddle.

Use roasted, peeled and then ****pureed beets instead of sketchy red food coloring.  Fold the beets into the pancake batter to make it turn pink.  Top pancakes with fresh sliced strawberries and homemade whipped cream.   This is a great idea for the weekend.   We have pancakes every Sunday morning.  We are going to kick off Valentine’s Day Week with Tara’s Pink Pancakes.

*** Test Kitchen Note:  Try juice from defrosted frozen raspberries instead of beets for sweet taste.

3.  Make Heart Shaped Sandwiches for Kids

Mandy Keith, owner of Yummy Mummy Meals Workshop suggests making a Valentine’s Day lunch.  Cut kids’ sandwiches into heart shapes and add fruit shaped hearts to their plates.  This is a fun way to surprise your kids next Thursday on Valentine’s Day.  They will love it when they open their lunch box at school and see heart shaped foods.  Make the moment extra special and pack a sweet  Valentine’s Day note.

Mandy runs Yummy Mummy Meals Workshop out of her home in Hanover.  She teaches moms how to prepare a series of meals and gives you the ingredients to take home and later make the meals on your own.

During February, Yummy Mummy Meals Workshop is making Dishes with with a romance flair, such as Tender Loving Tenderloin.

4.  Splurge on Treats! 

We just finished a January series on wellness… but every now and then it’s fun to splurge.

Three words:  Red Velvet Cupcakes.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
