WHAT IS AN EARTHLING?

At Whole Foods Market (our world of Team Members, suppliers, customers, and partners) we’re all Earthlings. We know where our food comes from; sometimes we even grow our own. We recycle (more than just paper), we care about how animals are treated, we’re committed to a SUSTAINABLE future, and we care about our COMMUNITY and our planet.
