Am using your hair and body products and find them to be a good value for me, both physially and financially. It is great to know that my purchase and use of these products is creating a better life for others. Keep up the good work.

Wonderful product line that I look forward to supporting even more after reading the amazing impact they're having in the villages of Togo. I've made a pact to fill my vanity with products like Alaffia (I like to call them "products with a purpose") as I run out of the commercial lines I currently have. Thank you Whole Foods for the heads up and for offering great products lines that we can feel good about supporting.

Knowing that products are environmentally well made by people who are paid a living wage is important.

I like Whole Trade products because they ensure that everyone involved in the production process receives their fair share of wages. Everyone deserves a good quality of life!

Coming from a Central American country, I know how hard it is for my family down there to receive fair pay for their hard work, so I only buy products who help support these types of families, its important to me.

These are great products because they support living wages for workers. It is fair and equitable and closer to closing income gaps!

I always read ingredients lists on the back of products, and it is important to me that this brand uses only natural and good quality ingredients. Thank you.

Thank you for making us more aware. It's so easy to not look beyond our own situation. Bless you for all you do to help others help themselves! I look forward to trying your product line.

I lived in The Gambia, West Africa for 2 years and often go for too long without sending money or even a letter to the family I lived with there. Buying the Whole Trade products is my "easy" way of supporting other people in W. Africa and relives a bit of guilt.

Years ago I watched a documentary about child labor in the coffee industry. From that point on, I couldn't shop with a clear conscience for anything but whole trade, fair trade products. Thanks for a great giveaway!

Typically you only hear of tales of woe and uncountless hardships about people in Africa; this company is a contribution beyond the monetary value, it gives this community hope.

with a world full of greed, abuse, and exploitation, it's encouraging and SO important to me to know that products are produced in a fair and honorable way, to help provide fair wages for families around the world

It's important to know that the products I purchase are helping those in the greatest need. I fund microfinance loans in Africa through Kiva, and this is all around a cause that I feel strongly about. Keep up the great work!
