Wow. I have used Alaffia's products before, but I had no idea about the connection to providing medical care to women. Amazing how we really are globally connected and decisions to support companies that are committed to local communities means that what we buy impacts other people's lives in surprising ways.

It's time for people to realize that people are behind the products we buy; with the absurdly cheap price of an item comes the unjust misery of a laborer on the other end. When you buy something that is Whole Trade Guaranteed, you know that you are supporting another person that is just like you- working for a living- and you have the piece of mind knowing that their wages are fair.

Buying whole trade products is important to me because it lets me know that the manufacturers are not only concerned with their profits but are also concerned with helping people live better lives. These are the kinds of companies we need.

For Alaffia and Whole Trade Guaranteed products, I find it refreshing to see people work so hard to help those in need. Please continue working hard to spread the word about your cause so more people can be aware.

I am happy to know that the products I buy are helping people rather than harming them.

Whole trade products support local economies, and when we buy them it shows support for locals,for those that are personally involved in the products and for economies in the developing and third worlds.

This is a great story of someone using their profits to truly help people with real needs, and not just push a political agenda. Bravo!

I first found out about Alaffia products while traveling a few years ago. I was very impressed about how they give back to the community, and help women. I have been using their products ever since. It's great that Whole Foods is spotlighting them. It helps to bring more awareness to he issues women in these communities face.

Products like these are important to me in supporting because I like to help/support communities and programs such as these. Because of this, my family is becoming more community orientated and more green. If something we consume/purchase is not produced in the US, as a family we make sure it is supporting others who truly need it.

We ARE our neighbors therefore we need to make a commitment to each other. That is why Whole Trade products are important.

Knowing where our food and products come from, that personal care was used in processing, and that money spent goes to deserving families is the key to being human. I support fair trade for these resons and more. Keep up the good work WF!
