Planting my first garden in my new digs, and I like the idea of the group effort to encourage fair trade and helping those who love the earth and use it wisely. Also love anything natural with shea butter, the scent is delightful and the texture is smooth and silky. And the Chocolate by "Divine Chocolate", happy to know someone out there is making something just for us chocolate lovers. I'm looking forward to discovering more treats for myself and my family.

The idea of one small purchase at a time to help the workers in developing countries is appealing to so many people. By buying the fair trade products, we can feel good about the quality and also know that those workers are treated respectfully, with better working conditions and fair wages.

It's often underestimated, the power the individual consumer possesses. By purchasing products such as these, not only am I making a difference the these womens' lives, but I'm getting a quality product.

Sustainability can happen with the help of such forward thinking individuals. As Ghandi said "be the change you want to see in the world"

I just finished watching a video on YouTube about the process of making shea butter. It is so important to fund programs where women can be a part of their economic futures. Research has shown that women are superior managers of money and can reestablish stability to their communities. Thanks for being a huge part in expanding our knowledge of other ways of life and supporting such a worthy cause. Well worth the $$$.

Personally, I would rather someone tell me how I can do for myself rather than just handing me a gift. It is empowering to know that I can help myself if I need to! This is what we are doing my buying whole trade products.

Better care for the people of Whole Trade. Better care means a better product and equal worker's rights.

I like knowing that something I purchase can truly help someone--not just giving more money to a greedy corporation.

With Whole Trade products I know what I've purchased was fairly traded and made with care and quality products. Only the best goes into Whole Trade products -- something I can always count on.

I support the companies and people that are more fortunate in life that are able to give the chance for a healthier, better life to hard-working, less fortunate people who are not just looking for a handout. Rather, they are seeking the opportunity to bring a better life to their families and villages by various industrious means. For this, I salute you Whole Foods! I have been shopping at "Whole Foods" in the greater Los Angeles area since it began here as "Mrs. Goochs" Natural Food Store before being taken over by Whole Foods; this would be since the late 1970s. I spend thousands of dollars a year at your stores and I commend you for bettering the lives of those struggling in the United States and world-wide.
