on Jul 16, 2018 5:47:00 PM


Vermont Coffee Company publicly announced becoming the nation’s first 100% renewable biogas-powered coffee roastery in May 2018 — but this change has been a long time coming! Since founding Vermont Coffee Company in 2000, Paul Ralston has been searching for renewable energy sources for roasting coffee, which traditionally consumes high volumes of energy during the roasting process.


Marketing Partners helped Paul and the VCC team get out the word about the big news through a multi-media news announcement and landing page that were picked up by numerous regional, local and  major trade publications.

Welcome to Our Client Family: Janet S. Munt FAMILY ROOM

on Feb 5, 2018 1:22:00 PM


We're delighted to welcome the Janet S. Munt Family Room, a Vermont parent-child center in Burlington, to the Marketing Partners' family of nonprofit clients with a mission focused on serving the diverse families and children in our region. For nearly 30 years the Family Room has provided education, support and connection for parents and promoted physical, social, emotional and linguistic development in children. The Family Room has separated from its parent organization, the Visiting Nurse Association, to transition to independence as a 501c3 nonprofit organization — enter Marketing Partners to help with a new visual and verbal identity in advance of a gala 30th anniversary celebration in July 2018.


We had the pleasure of working with the Family Room's Jackie Reno when we produced a video to honor her award as Early Childhood Educator of the Year for the Permanent Fund for Vermont's Children.

on Jun 2, 2017 8:57:15 AM

Elaine Ezerins of the St. Albans Messenger tells the story of local maple sugar maker Branon Family Maple Orchards in Fairfield, to illustrate how integrating bird conservation practices into their forest management plans helps to protect birds and their habitats.

Elaine interviewed Cecile Branon and Audubon Vermont conservation biologist Steve Hagenbuch for an original and detailed piece that explains how the project works and its benefits as well as any we've seen. Education on bird-friendly habitat and recognizing participating maple producers are both goals of Audubon Vermont -- a win-win for people, business and the birds!
