Fentons Creamery: Don't trash the Earth! Use greener containers and utensils


Since 1894, Fentons Creamery has been an iconic Oakland landmark. For generations It has served up its famous handcrafted ice creams. Fentons has been featured on the Travel Channel, The History Channel, The Food Network, in USA Today and ZAGAT. Fentons even made a cameo in Pixar's family film "Up".

On a recent visit to the shop in Oakland's Piedmont neighborhood I took my place in the long line snaking out the door. While waiting,  I was saddened to see huge garbage bins filled to the brim with Fentons containers, lids, and plastic spoons -- destined for the landfill. 

Generations of young people have enjoyed Fentons, and Fentons can help make sure there's a greener future for the next generation of ice cream enthusiasts. That's why we are asking Fentons to replace the thousands of containers that would end up in a landfill with greener, more sustainable containers and utensils. 

Tell Fentons Creamery: In honor of Earth Day, switch to more sustainable containers and utensils at your ice cream parlors and restaurants.

Letter to
Owner, Fentons Creamery Scott Whidden
We love Fentons Creamery, and appreciate everything you and your company do for the communities of Oakland.

Generations of young people have enjoyed Fentons, and we, residents of the Bay Area and lovers of Fentons ice cream, are asking you to help make sure there's a greener future for the next generation of ice cream enthusiasts.

It's common to see huge garbage bins filled to the brim with Fentons containers outside your shops -- destined for the landfill.

In honor of Earth Day, we are asking you to stop sending many thousands of containers to the landfill and instead use greener, more sustainable containers and utensils at Fentons Creamery.

Sincerely,
