Paramus, NJ, March 14, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Carrington Co. LLC, the leader in quality tea at an affordable price, is featuring its first Pennies per Cup campaign to benefit food pantries – and consumers’ wallets – across New Jersey, Connecticut, Maryland, and in New York City, Long Island, Philadelphia, and Central Pennsylvania. The campaign will benefit local community food banks and member food banks of the national organization, Feeding America, throughout the end of March.
For every 100 boxes of tea purchased in these areas, Carrington Tea will donate 100 cups of the natural, comforting tea to the local food bank. Available at most supermarkets and mass merchandisers, Carrington Tea retails, literally, for only pennies per cup, making it an affordable way to warm up anyone’s day during this cold – and economically difficult – winter season.
"We're just one company, but through the Pennies per Cup campaign, we want to challenge the other food companies to step up their contributions, as many people are facing a difficult 2009,” said Carrington CEO David Eben.
Now in its 10th year, Carrington has become the value leader throughout much of the nation by providing quality tea at an affordable price. Eben notes that hot tea can be calming and comforting. "Drinking hot tea on a cold day can soothe and relax the whole body. It is especially restorative when a person is sick, and green tea offers healthful benefits and is a great source of antioxidants."
Purchases of Carrington Tea during the Pennies per Cup campaign throughout the end of March will benefit the food pantries as well as consumers' wallets. Carrington is known for its affordable range of teas including: green teas (mint, lemon and ginseng flavors, original and organic/decaffeinated), naturally caffeine-free chamomile and peppermint, and flavorful black teas. All Carrington teas are 100% natural with no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. Look for Carrington Tea at select supermarkets and mass merchandisers such as Foodtown, Kings, Thriftway, Shop & Bag, Pathmark, Wal-Mart Supercenters, Shoppers, Mars, Farm Fresh, ShopRite, Giant Eagle, and Redners.
