I love that not only is it a product that hasn't been tarnished by the "big brand" companies or mass marketing; it's a product that supports grassroots companies at a real, organic, tangible level. I have always been a fan of voting via your groceries and purchasing Whole Trade items speaks to exactly that ideal. On a more personal level, I try to be very conscious of the products I not only ingest but also those that I put on my body, so it is refreshing to know that products untouched by scientific labs still exist in today's world. If anything, the presence of these products in our everyday lives seems to grow exponentially each season. Hooray for wholesomeness! p.s. I agree with Natasha's comment. :)

I feel so good that global business can benefit regular people like ourselves and bypass large corporations. We can help each other to build better lives in this way and share the good of the earth with each other. Each time I use the product, I think of the farmers who created it and feel that I have done some good in the world to help my fellow humans.

I knew that shea really only comes from 1 area of the world and I am thrilled that this is making a difference in this population! Fair Trade rocks!

I just shopped there for the first time this past Monday, and I must say I loved it! The store staff was so friendly, everyone said hi, very helpful, very very helpful. I purchased some wonderful Lobster Bisque that was soooooo good and I got some cheese and just a whole lot of stuff...I will be back!

I like to purchase food from whole foods not only because it is healthier for my family, but because I am supporting local farmers. I hope that one day buying whole foods will be less expensive.

Knowing that your purchase benefits more than just the person you are buying it for - its the gift that keeps on giving.

Fair trade products, whole trade products are important because of the living wages that the makers get. sustaining a family is important and western cultures should not take advantage of cheap labor.

I have purchased fair trade tea and coffee but after reading the comments I will be looking for more diverse products to try in the future.

The Whole Trade movement is the way that business should have been done all along. We need to respect and be kind to others and the world would be a much better place...this is a great start.

It is key to guard human rights and the environment in all our trading. I wish that was a national and international requirement for world trade.

The UNIVERSE gives us so much in life on a daily basis . The least we can do is be responsible with our Mother Earth. We can all do our part, from recycling to buying free trade products .

What I love best about purchasing Whole Trade Products are these 2 things:That Whole Trade ensures better wages and working conditions for workers and that Whole Trade cares about the environment. Those are two things that I really am concerned about.
