To all those at "Whole Foods Market", I must say thank you a million times for allowing us as consumers to each make a difference in the world. Each week I get to put my vote in for organic, fair trade products because you have made it possible. I love that I'm able to purchase fair trade items and to see that I'm making a difference for West Africa, other countries, and my home ground, the United States. The more I purchase the better and stronger our world becomes as a "Whole".

What I like about buying Whole Trade products: knowing my money is supporting a women's cooperative that allows its employees - who would otherwise be excluded from the economic system - to support their families. The more money that bypasses large corporations and goes directly to a Whole Trade organization, the better.

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.

Thank you for believing in women! We are providers of knowledge, kindness, and nourishment in the most creative ways. I think Whole trade products show how worthy and beautiful a traditional life is.

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.

I like purchasing Whole Trade products. I'm purchasing products that I would normally buy, but my purchase benefits others. It's a great feeling to know that I can help someone by making the right choice at the store.

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.
