In 2012, The Seaweed Bath Co. received a Local Producer Loan from Whole Foods Market, which helped kick start our business and expand our distribution at Whole Foods Market. Today, we are proud to have our seaweed-based bath, body and hair care products available at Whole Foods Market stores across the country. In the spirit of paying it forward, we are proud to support Whole Planet Foundation as we continue to grow our business.
Positively impacting our community and beyond is a part of core mission, and this year we are giving back through Whole Planet Foundation’s $10K Fund. Our $10,000 contribution will create 53 microloans for microentrepreneurs and 283 opportunities for a better life.
This month, we were honored to be a presenting sponsor for the 2017 Virtual 10K Run for the Planet focused on helping families in 69 countries lift themselves out of poverty. And from now until August 13, 15% of all sales of The Seaweed Bath Co. products at Whole Foods Market stores nationwide will be donated to alleviate global poverty.
We are also excited to launch two new product lines in Whole Food Market stores this summer: our Purifying Detox Body Washes and our Exfoliating Detox Body Scrubs. These new body washes and body scrubs join our expanding detox line and contain our hero ingredient, sustainably-harvested Maine seaweed, to purify, restore and protect your skin. Be on the lookout for our new products and our colorful Whole Planet Foundation scan back signs on the shelves in your local Whole Foods Market store!
To continue the celebration, Whole Planet Foundation is giving away a full set of our detox body care products (shown below) on its Facebook page. The contest ends on August 8, 2017. Good luck!
