We built this blog-driven site for Whole Foods Market and their agency Omelet (http://wholefoodslovelocal.com/). The site emphasizes the company’s focus on natural and organic products and features stories and videos about local farmers who actually grow the food, focusing on their love and passion for what they do. Here at HelpsGood we are in complete support of what Whole Foods does.
Whole Foods supports their community by sourcing locally as much as possible. Rather than just donating to local community causes, it’s helping local, small businesses to flourish.
Sustainable Connections says that when “you buy from an independent, locally owned business, rather than nationally owned businesses, significantly more of your money is used to make purchases from other local businesses, service providers and farms — continuing to strengthen the economic base of the community.” Shopping local also creates more jobs, gets you better service, and reduces the environmental impact!
