I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your store! I have gluten sensitivity and have found your store not only to carry the items I need - but much more and friendly helpful people! I love the fact that you have a deli and sushi products and that you can feel free to eat right there. Can't say enough about your store and the way it makes my life easier when finding organic, wholefood products. I'll be a LIFE long customer!! Thank you so much for being there!! Michele

I love the fact that Whole Foods is committed to helping the environment, the people who are producing the food and us, the consumer so we are getting "whole foods", nutritious, not chemicals. This is a Win/Win/Win and I will continue to support Whole Trade and Whole Foods!

My favorite fair trade product is Organic Essence Organic Shea Cream, it works great for massage and is USDA certified organic. I like that the communities that produce fair trade products are empowered to succeed in an agricultural business that honors the land and supports the local inhabitants.

It's wonderful to be able to buy natural, healthy, and really great products from around the world and support the small independant companies and farmers.

Thank God there is something good in the world. Pure products from pure people...not corporations. I like that the money I spend will help people earn a living. And the products they produce are useful and better than average.

I never realized that becoming involved with whole foods would lead to so much other great stuff!! I feel like I've been so out of the loop in not only what's good for my health but what's good for the world. Thank you, and I will be definitely buying all sorts of products to help (and of course for enjoyment!) including your lotions and bath products! This winter skin is horrible!!

I'm all for whole trade products and supporting small farmers and workers around the world, especially in developing countries. Living in a cold climate, I love the hot chocolate on a cold winter night. I shop at Whole Foods every week. Love the bananas in a smoothie with blueberries. The face cream works wonders when the air is so dry in the winter.

I am just a good consumer looking to buy things. If that can help my family, my environment and if it helps others well isn't that the way things should just be?

Very important to me is better wages and working conditons for worker. Ethical treatment of all people and animals is a priority in deciding where to shop. Whole Foods partnering with the Whole Trade practice and philosophy is key.

I always buy whatever Whole Trade products I find. Not only are they great products, it just makes good sense to help in whatever way we can. I now have several friends who do the same. We all need to work together.

Whole Trade products meet high quality standards, take care of the enviroment, provides more money to producers, and ensures adequate wages and working conditions for the workers. My favorite fair traade products are banannas and roobios tea.

My husband just gave me fair trade earrings from Brazil and a fair trade brooch from Bali for Valentine's Day. They are both lovely and special. We try to put our money where our values are.

I just recently found out what significance these products have not only for the people who produce them, but for those who use them. As companies become larger and larger, the products become more and more contaminated. These corporations not only pollute our bodies, they pollute our earth. I love buying the fair trade products not only for thier taste and superiority, but it's very satisfying to know what you are supporting by choosing these brands. My favorite product is the fair trade brownies, yum!

Our main focus in buying personal care products for our family is 1st- that they are cruelty free (no animal testing) and 2nd- that they don't contain potential carcinogens. Those are the two basic criteria, but it's an extra bonus to us when we can buy fair trade products. Part of the cruelty free philosophy is a bigger picture of trying to maintain habitats for native species. Industrialization in the western mold is horrible for native habitats. If the kind of fair trade collectives like the ones used by Every Day Shea, are far less disruptive to native species as well as helping people live better lives, directly, simply and efficiently. Lastly, the fact that these fair trade or "Whole Trade" products directly benefit women's lives who are often excluded from the economic benefits of global trade. Good Job All Around!

I like whole trade purchase because it feels like you are supporting people and their families with meaningful work, lives and income. And just the fact that it still exists and will continue to exist if we support it.
