Amherst, New Hampshire (PRWEB) February 15, 2013
A&E Custom Coffee Roastery in Amherst, NH, is looking for artists, illustrators, and other creative types to submit Earth Day-themed artwork. One talented individual's concept will become the next label for A&E’s limited-time Earth Day Blend coffee.
“We have always supported the arts community in Southern New Hampshire and Northern Massachusetts,” said Emeran Langmaid, owner of A&E Coffee. “This year, we decided to showcase a piece of that art on our coffee packaging.”
A&E Custom Coffee Roastery is looking for an artist to create the label art for its special “Earth Day Blend.” For six weeks, from April 1, 2013, until May 15, 2013, A&E will sell this blend - with the winning label - in its café and online.
Each year, a portion of sales of the Earth Day Blend is donated to a charity. This year, the winning artist will choose a non-profit to direct a $2 donation from every bag sold. In addition, A&E will match the donation, meaning, for every bag of Earth Day Blend sold, $4 will be donated to the non-profit of the artist’s choosing.
“What better way to celebrate Earth Day than to engage artists and support a nonprofit," Langmaid said. “I am certain we will get some impressive entries, and I’m excited to see them come in.”
