Ben & Jerry's cleverly tweaks their original packaging design, created by Pearlfisher, in honor of marriage for all. Ben & Jerry's has been supporting Marriage equality for over 35 years.
" Our commitment to the LGBTQ community is grounded in our company’s core values, which include a deep respect for people inside and outside our company, and an unshakable belief that all people deserve full and equal civil rights.
Back in 1989 we were the first major employer in Vermont to offer health insurance to domestic partners of employees, including same sex couples, and we haven’t spent one minute regretting it. Here are a few other ways Ben & Jerry’s has supported Marriage Equality over the years:
1996: Our Foundation awards grants to PFLAG (Parents, Friends and Family of Lesbians and Gays) organizations
1999: We supported Vermont’s Civil Union Bill
2001: Ben & Jerry’s supported the Employment Non-Discrimination Act
2009: We celebrated gay marriage in Vermont the best way we know how—by renaming Chubby Hubby to Hubby Hubby"
