I like knowing that something I purchase can truly help someone--not just giving more money to a greedy corporation.

With Whole Trade products I know what I've purchased was fairly traded and made with care and quality products. Only the best goes into Whole Trade products -- something I can always count on.

I support the companies and people that are more fortunate in life that are able to give the chance for a healthier, better life to hard-working, less fortunate people who are not just looking for a handout. Rather, they are seeking the opportunity to bring a better life to their families and villages by various industrious means. For this, I salute you Whole Foods! I have been shopping at "Whole Foods" in the greater Los Angeles area since it began here as "Mrs. Goochs" Natural Food Store before being taken over by Whole Foods; this would be since the late 1970s. I spend thousands of dollars a year at your stores and I commend you for bettering the lives of those struggling in the United States and world-wide.

I think it is wonderful to have these women able to work, to provide for themselves and their families. To empower them and to give them an ability to be sustainable. Wonderful too that we can help by buying their products. I wish there were more companies like "Everyday Shea" that did this to help in countries like West Africa and all over the world. There are so many out there in third world countries that need help to make it to survive. We in a america and in other better off countries like us take for granted how blessed we really are. Even in these hard times we don't even have it close to half as bad as people have it in third world countries all over the world...So thank you to Companies like Everyday Shea and to fair trade in general that help others. I for one am very thankful for all I have and love to help others in needed as I am able to do so. We all should. I believe One person can make a difference...It starts with one

To put it simply - it feels good to feel good. Every small, random act of kindness, every effort to help those less well off or in need - these are the things that help our children to see how things SHOULD be. Our children, today's children, are the leaders of tomorrow. If purchasing Whole Trade products helps to enlighten our children - just imagine what the world could be like in the years to come.

My mother got me an Everyday Shea product about a year ago and told me their story- which is truly incredible! It's so nice to see some good coming to the world in a dark time like this :) and if you can be, as is now rather trendy, both enriching your life and that of others silumtaneously, what have you to lose? and if all that weren't enough... the products are fragrant, smooth, and natural. sweet!

I wasn't aware of these Whole Trade products. I will try them next time I come to the store. I like that this is a way to empower local communities throughout the world.

There are only 100% natural scented oils used. Most other products add something for scent that is not natural. Giving back to the people of these these products is one of the reasons I will always purchase Everyday-Shea. Thank you very much for leaning a helping hand to those that are in dire need of it. Together, we can make a difference. J. "Ronnie" Williams

Every product should be held to these standards. I can trust hold foods to give me the best product and also ensures that in every step of the way the product is made with integrity, honesty and of course organic!!

I like the fact that not only is it good for my skin but it's good for my heart because I know that the money is going to such a great cause!

I love to know that simply by purchasing a certain product, I am positively contributing to the life of another. Purchasing Whole Trade products allows me to take part in a cycle that distributes wealth and, hopefully will aid in the end of poverty and the exploitation of the poor. Thank you for creating such an opportunity for us to enrich each other's lives.

I love knowing that I'm helping to support women - who, let's face it, support their families more consistently than men - when I buy this great product. Everybody wins! Thanks.

In a world of commercialization, it is wonderful to see products made in the traditional way and empowering women in the process. Kudos to Whole Foods for bringing this to our attention!

It is gratifying to know that purchasing a product has a direct benefit for the person/community that created it. The world over the oldest traditions are getting lost to the newer faster conveniences of modern society. I am happy to support the preservation of those traditions, and in this case to support these women in their trade.
