Trees, Water & People was selected from a nation-wide pool of nonprofit organizations as the beneficiary of Whole Foods Market’s “Change for Change” program at their Bellevue, Washington store, raising more than $11,000!
Over the past year, Whole Foods Market organic fair trade coffee customers have generously dropped spare change into a jar with awareness that their small contributions would make a difference for both people and the planet.
The funds raised will be used to support Trees, Water & People’s ongoing reforestation, watershed protection, renewable energy, appropriate technology, and environmental education programs throughout Latin America, the American West, and Northern Colorado.
Whole Foods Market, a leader in environmentally sustainable practices, created the “Change for Change” program as a way to emphasize the importance of making change matter in a time when change can happen.
Together, Whole Foods Market and Trees, Water & People believe that companies, like individuals, must assume their share of responsibility as tenants of Planet Earth.
Trees, Water & People would like to thank Whole Foods Market for their generosity and support. Because of your consideration, we can continue working towards helping the planet and the people we love!
