Events, In-Store Promotions and Competitions
Help raise awareness of the impacts of the work of the Rainforest Alliance while showcasing your links to us and hence your commitment to ethical sourcing. Below are some ideas. When planning for your event and/or promotion, please remember that all uses of the Rainforest Alliance Certified™ seal or Rainforest Alliance Verified™ mark must be pre-approved in writing by the Rainforest Alliance.
- Host a tasting, demo or event highlighting your products that display the green frog seal.
- Use the Follow the Frog point-of-sale materials to decorate the venue of your event.
- Invite local press and bloggers to your Follow the Frog event and encourage them to send a photographer or video crew. If they can’t attend, offer to send them your own images of the event for publication.
- Inform and motivate your employees about the work of the Rainforest Alliance through staff training events.
