We are excited to be partnering with Whole Planet Foundation for a second year in a row to raise up to 10,000 to create 60 micro-loans. For every 2 Body Care Products purchased at Whole Foods Market, we will donate $1 to the Whole Planet Foundation.
Whole Planet Foundation’s mission is to alleviate world poverty and hunger worldwide. A small loan can help change the lives of these entrepreneurs so that they can build home-based businesses that create opportunity and stability for their family. Whole Planet Foundation has donated micro-loans to more than 330,000 women entrepreneurs in 59 countries, and they plan to raise over $40 million in 2014. With entrepreneurs in Sri Lanka, Peru and Turkey, we are thrilled to make a difference in their lives.
Since 1921, we believe in the use of natural plants, and the use of organic and biodynamic ingredients. We have developed sustainable, fair-trade partnerships with farmers all around the world. What better way to drive ecological change then by promoting stability and prosperity to families all around the world. We helped open a school in Turkey, where we cultivate 400 million roses each year. We also helped open a medical clinic in an impoverished and rural area in Moldova where we source lavender.
Our goal is to make a change that will benefit thousands of individuals around the world. Help us end the persistent problem of world poverty and hunger. Together we can give back.
