29 Massachusetts and New Hampshire Stores Joining Local Hunger Causes, Highlighting New “Three for Free”Campaign

Area Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt shop owners today announced a holiday season effort to collect a minimum of 3,000 canned and nonperishable food items for local food pantries where their stores are located. Customers who bring in a canned good during the week of Dec. 2 will get three free ounces of frozen yogurt with every eight ounce purchase.

But donating canned goods for a good cause isn’t the only thing that will earn customers free yogurt. Orange Leaf’s new “Three for Free” campaign, running Nov. 13 through Dec. 22, also rewards customers that play along with a new, weekly offbeat challenge. For example, if a customer can say “three for free” three times fast at their local Massachusetts or New Hampshire Orange Leaf from Nov. 13 until Nov.17, they will also get three ounces for free.

“At Orange Leaf, we want to promote fun while helping our community. The ‘Three for Free’ campaign will do just that by combining silly challenges for free yogurt with our more serious canned food drive,” said Mike Hennessy, president of the Orange Leaf Co-Op of Massachusetts and New Hampshire. “And the best part is that the canned and dry goods will be donated to a food pantry that serves that community.”

Each participating Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt shop has identified a nearby food bank where they will deliver their donated items. A full list of participating shops and food pantries is below.

Customers can find out what the promotion is each week by checking on the 3 for Free Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/3forfreeorangeleaf), and following #3forFree on all social media outlets.

Next Level Church in Epping

Next Level Church is proud to announce its 4th location is launching in Epping, NH on Sunday, March 10th! The church will be meeting every Sunday at the brand new, O’Neil Cinemas at 24 Calef Highway (right at the intersection of Route 101 and Route 125). There will be two identical experiences every Sunday at both 9:15 and 10:30am, featuring live acoustic rock music, relevant and engaging teaching on things that matter to your everyday life, and a full kids environment for children of every age to learn in an exciting way!

Next Level Church started 5 years ago with 12 people and has become known throughout northern New England for providing an unique, relevant, and engaging atmosphere where everyone is welcome and encouraged to “come as you are”. Next Level Church believes that church should be fun, exciting, and most importantly, understandable, so that everyone can relate to it and have God make a difference in their life.

According to Lead Pastor Josh Gagnon, “We started Next Level Church with the belief that people didn’t object to the message of Jesus, but rather to the way they had experienced church in the past as judgmental, boring, or hypocritical. We have found that we were right ­ when church is fun, casual, and shares Jesus in a way people can relate to, people love it!” Next Level Church began just under 5 years ago and now meets in 4 locations: Newington, NH; Portland, ME; North Shore, MA; and Epping, NH. At every location, there is a local pastor, live band, and amazing kids environments, where people can experience the message of the Bible in a casual, inviting atmosphere no matter where they are in life.
Lead Pastor Joshua Gagnon says, “Next Level Church is church you will look forward to attending and will be proud to invite your friends to. Basically, it is the kind of church I wish I had been able to find, but never could, where we talk about things that really mattered in my life in plain, everyday language; and I felt comfortable being myself, both the good and the bad.”

Brentwood Dental Designs Earns Eco-Dentistry Gold Certification

bdentalEpping, NH (2/27/13) Brentwood Dental Designs is one of the first 100 dental practices in the world to achieve the Eco-Dentistry Association’s Gold Certification, by successfully completing the EDA’s GreenDOC™ program.  Only dental offices meeting the association’s highest standards of pollution prevention, waste reduction, water and energy conservation, and wellness-based practices qualify as EDA certified offices.


The EDA’s GreenDOC™ program contains over 80 eco-friendly initiatives that dental offices can implement, covering the physical office space, dental processes and materials, and administrative and community outreach methods used by the office. For example, Dr. Tamatha L. Johnson’s office uses digital imaging and digital patient charting, which reduces landfill waste and patient radiation exposure by as much as 90%, and has installed a special device capturing mercury-containing material before it enters local water supplies. Dr. Johnson’s office implemented a wide range of initiatives listed in the GreenDOC program and achieved 286.5 points, allowing it to earn the Gold Certification.

“We know that our environmental problems are serious and that each of us needs to do what we can to be part of the solution”, said Dr. Johnson.  “As an EDA Certified practice, we are able to continue to provide our patients with the highest quality of dental care while incorporating the highest standards of planetary care.”

Brentwood Dental Designs strives to be a model for a new kind of dental practice by making responsible choices in the following areas: site selection, interior design, construction waste recycling, material selection, use of low and no VOC paints and adhesives, energy and water efficiency, waste and noise reduction, patient safety, disinfection, sterilization, and practice administration, marketing and communication.  The office is located at 1 Brickyard Square, Suite 5 in Epping.

“We applaud the efforts of Dr. Tamatha L. Johnson and her team, who are on the leading edge of dentistry’s green future”, remarked Dr. Fred Pockrass, a California dentist who co-founded the Eco-Dentistry Association.  “It is our vision that one day all dentistry will be practiced in the earth-friendly and patient-friendly way of Dr. Johnson’s practice.”

EnviroVantage Giving Back!

EnviroVantage CFO, Tonya Knightly, will be participating in her 8th Three Notch Century next month, September 7-9. This 100-mile bike ride will take three days over three peaks in the White Mountains. The Three Notch Century is the biggest fundraiser for Northeast Passage, a local not-for-profit with ties to the University of New Hampshire. The mission of Northeast Passage is to create an environment where individuals with disabilities can enjoy recreation with the same freedom of choice, quality of life, and independence as their non-disabled peers.

As a support rider, Tonya will assist a hand cyclist throughout the ride. Not only does she participate physically, but she also helps Northeast Passage financially by spreading the word and raising money. EnviroVantage has been a financial supporter for every ride, and for the last four years, they have been the top fundraiser. It is Tonya’s goal, with the support of EnviroVantage, to raise $3500.

Over the past eight years, Tonya has volunteered her time to Northeast Passage, working with their water-ski, cycling, and kayaking programs. Tonya had much to say when asked about her experience with Northeast Passage: “It is heartwarming to see the joy we bring. This July, I again traveled to NYC to teach soldiers seriously injured in Iraq and Afghanistan through the Wounded Warrior Project. Over 50 soldiers and their families enjoyed a weekend of water sports. Every week I work with people who touch my soul.”

Northeast Passage gives persons with disabilities the knowledge and help they need to find their inner athlete. EnviroVantage would like to support this amazing cause by letting others know that there are ways they can help too.
