At Pete and Gerry's Organic Eggs, our family has been farming for four generations. We are totally committed—okay, a little obsessed—with bringing you the highest-quality, safest, and freshest eggs possible. We are a values-led company, dedicated to the humane treatment of animals and small family farms, who we believe are the best stewards of environmental sustainability.
In 2003, we became America’s first Certified Humane egg producer, under the auspices of Humane Farm Animal Care.
In 2013, we became America’s first egg producer to earn the “B-Corp Certified” designation as a For-Benefit Corporation, under the auspices of B-Labs.
All our eggs come from small family farms like ours. These are real farms, not factories that simply use the farm label. All our farmers follow the strictest standards of humane animal treatment, safety, and environmental sustainability. We believe our hens deserve a safe, comfortable place to live a happy, healthy life – and that our family farmers deserve the right to keep their lands and livelihoods without having to resort to unhealthy factory-farm practices.
That’s not just good for our hens and our planet – it’s also good business. Rather than becoming yet another factory farm, we grow our healthy business by recruiting other small family farms to supply us with eggs. We increase our efficiency and productivity by using cutting-edge production techniques and smart automation to process and distribute our eggs, but never by cramming the animals that provide us food into inhumanely small spaces.

As moms, Hannah MacBride and Jessica Forrest are keenly aware of the consumption that goes along with raising kids. The average child acquires hundreds of new toys over the course of their young lifetimes, contributing to environmental problems such as habitat loss, carbon emissions, and ultimately, landfill waste. And parents are overwhelmed by all the kid stuff, which often goes unused and needs to be stored. Meanwhile, downtown community places that truly welcome and engage children are few and far between.
Recognizing these problems, but also the value of toys for fostering child development, Hannah and Jessica offer Community Toy Chest as an alternative model. The model offers a toy rental membership, a community play space, and STEAM enrichment activities. Toy rental members have access to a large inventory of high quality, educational toys, that they can check out and return when finished. The associated play space allows families to connect while children play. Guided sustainability and STEAM-oriented activities help children to learn and solve problems and provide opportunities to practice sustainable lifestyle choices.

There is no single straight path to a meaningful career. And without exposure to the opportunities that exist, that path is harder to find. How can we ask kids and young adults to have career clarity when they don't even know their interests, their strengths, or what is possible? Launch Now is a safe, streamlined platform for students to connect with local businesses for work-based learning opportunities. Our innovative platform compiles community educational resources and self-generated student data to form meaningful connections, real time. Schools use this tool to match students with hands-on opportunities to explore their professional interests in the real world. And by providing these opportunities, local businesses are encouraging and developing a talent pool of motivated applicants.
It was by chance, in a casual conversation with friends, that the idea for Launch Now was born. The group had posed the question: “what are we doing for kids who are trying to explore careers beyond high school, or even during middle and high school?” We gathered a group of trusted partners in the school, parent and business communities and began interviewing them. It quickly became apparent that the key to students making decisions about their future was their experience in the workplace and we wanted to streamline this process by introducing technology designed around them. Established in 2020, Launch Now developed the first and only multi-stakeholder technology supporting student centric, career connected learning while also providing a seamless, safe connection to businesses in partnership with school administrators.

The New Hampshire Toy Library Network is a Granite-State-based, college-student run toy library system with a mission to increase equity, decrease waste, and foster fun. It started when students at UNH noticed that adapted toys for children with disabilities can be 2-4 times the cost, and that even conventional toys can be cost prohibitive for families with lower income—the average family spending over 400 dollars on toys/games a year. We also found that 80% of plastic toys end up in oceans, landfills, and incinerators, and that New Hampshire was experiencing a brain-drain phenomenon with many students leaving the state after graduation. By giving college students the chance to network right here in the Granite State by running toy libraries in conjunction with local community libraries, we hope to address all of these issues.
Students from all majors can join the NH Toy Library Network at any of our sites. So far we are at the University of New Hampshire-Durham where the initiative was founded, and NHTI-Concord’s Community College. We students do our own grant applications, funding, marketing, budgeting, toy purchasing/donation collecting, and event organizing. We work in tandem with local community libraries in what we aim to be mutually beneficial partnerships, as we provide extra resources like toys and games at no cost to the individual patrons and even can host library events like Family Play Days, while we get the chance to learn from community professionals (librarians, para-librarians, city administrators). We hope to expand to even more NH state colleges and universities, both four-year and two-year institutions, so we can ensure children across the state, in every county, have access to enriching toys and games, especially adapted ones, at no cost to the individual. To our knowledge, this is college-student-run network model is not one we have seen anywhere else in the country, and we are excited to be working on it.

After several years as an attorney in Boston, I determined that I wanted a career in a field that would truly make my heart sing. I wanted my professional life to align more with the exhilaration I felt in outdoor hiking, running, skiing and dancing. I launched Rippleffect Consulting in 2007, essentially because I wanted to create a more far-reaching impact within and with those who partnered with me. The name resonated because of the fact that there is so much interconnection between mind, body and action. Because without action or movement, there is no ripple.
