Salt of the Earth Supports Whole Planet Foundation

Salt of the Earth Supports Whole Planet Foundation

We are thrilled to announce that we have pledged our support to The Whole Planet Foundation - a non-profit organisation working to alleviate poverty through microcredit in communities around the world that supply Whole Foods Market stores with product.

Salt of the Earth have agreed to donate 20p from every Salt of the Earth product sold through Whole Foods Market stores during the period February 17 th to March 31 st , with 100% of the proceeds directly funding microlending programs including MicroLoan Foundation Malawi and Grameen UK.  Microcredit is not a hand out – it is a business transaction that empowers people to use their own talents to lift themselves and their families out of poverty.  

This is a fantastic cause that helps people in poorer countries improve their quality of life by developing their own sustainable income streams. We are proud to be a part of this and hope our customers get on board and help us raise as much money as possible to empower these individuals and help them develop their natural skills and crafts to create more prosperous lives for their families.

Whole Planet Foundation is a private, non-profit organisation established by Whole Foods Market. It provides grants to microfinance institutions in Asia, Africa, the Americas and the Middle East, who in turn develop and offer microenterprise loan programs, training and other financial services to self-employed entrepreneurs impoverished communities.  It currently funds microlending programmes in 70 countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America and the US, helping to support 6.5 million people through 1.2 million loans.
