Ben & Jerry’s Release New Limited-Edition Flavour Calling for Action on Climate Change

/ 5 September 2018

Ben & Jerry’s “Gimme S’More Renewables” flavour harks to Aussie Politicians to create a fossil free world.

At a time where Australian politics is seemingly paralysed over the issue of climate change, ice-cream connoisseurs Ben & Jerry’s are speaking out, releasing a new limited-edition ice cream flavour: Gimme S’More Renewables. It marks a desperate plea towards Australia’s leaders to commit to building a fossil free world, by accelerating Australia’s move towards renewable energy.

The new release comes in the wake of #RiseforClimate, a global day of climate action, taking place on 8th September. Not only have Ben & Jerry’s sent personalised pints of the Gimme S’More Renewables ice cream to key federal and state politicians, but they’re asking supporters to join them at one of the fifty Rise for Climate picnics and marches around Australia.

You can make your voice heard by also sending a message to your local politicians via postal services installed at Ben & Jerry’s ice cream outlets nationwide. The plea is simple – ‘Renewable is Doable’.

To cap it all off, the Gimme S’More Renewables will be available in Scoop Shops for one day only on 8th September, or until stocks last. Honouring the popular S’More flavour, this limited release comes with marshmallow ice cream, chocolate cookies, Graham cracker swirls and fudge flakes. Proceeds from the flavour will go to Ben & Jerry’s’ long-term climate activism partner, Australia.

Ben & Jerry’s Australia spokesperson, Bert Naber, said: “This is the latest activity in our long- term fight for climate justice. Together with Australia, we want to inspire Australians, to call on politicians from all sides of politics to take serious action on climate change. We want a cleaner, greener world and one of the best ways to do this is through renewable energy. Now, more than ever we need individuals, business, local, state and federal governments to take action!”
