Cedar Rapids, Iowa - Eco Lips, America’s premium organic lip balm, has a lot to say about the importance of the organic body care movement especially when it comes to lips! Stonyfield Farm, the world’s leading organic yogurt maker, wants consumers to know that healthy food can only come from a healthy planet! With a common vision for delivering quality organic and natural products to consumers everywhere in order to effect dramatic change towards sustainability, the two companies have teamed up to do some co-promoting.
According to Steve Shriver, President and Founder of Eco Lips, “Stonyfield Farm has used Eco Lips organic lip balm for three projects this year: for general promotion of the Stonyfield brand, to introduce Shift cultured energy drinks and to promote Oikos Organic Greek-style yogurt. With such integrity of products, it is an honor to share the label of our product with this incredible company.” Stonyfield has been giving away the co-promoted Eco Lips balms at concerts, athletic games, trade shows and other public events.
“Our partnership with Eco Lips has been mutually beneficial,” says Carmelle Druchniak, Senior Communications Manager at Stonyfield Farm. “We have been very pleased with the lip balm concepts Steve and his crew have conceived and with the results of our marketing efforts using these products.” Adds Steve, “Likewise, it has been a total win/win! With Stonyfield’s marketing outreach and our organic lip balm, we have exposed thousands of consumers to the best of the best in organic yogurt and organic lip care.”
Both companies have a long history of pioneering efforts in the environmental sustainability and socially responsible business arenas. Stonyfield Farm is now celebrating its 25th year in business and Eco Lips’ Steve Shriver has been making organic lip balm for over 12 years. From Steve, “We love to do these types of promotions because by teaming up, we can truly initiate the change that is needed in our world. We haven’t officially started a co-label program, but we are open to marketing partnerships with like-minded companies. It is a fun way to do business.”
