Giving Back

Hi Everyone!

Nathan and I wanted to fill you in on some of the behind scenes projects we have been working on. Back in September we met up with Luke Barrett from C3H (Central Coast Collaborative On Homelessness) to discuss how we could help our local struggling community members as well as ensure our community’s safety. Luke informed us that in order to receive the proper services to get our local community members on the right track, they have to have an address to receive mail. So we decided to sponsor a P.O. Box for $250 a year. So far 6 people are signed up to receive mail and get back on their feet!

Last month through our local Rotary we were introduced to Deborah and Magda from Worth Street Reach and Laundry Love, who provide free laundry services for those living below the poverty line in the local Santa Barbara area. Their stories of local families struggling to get by inspired us to get involved and give back! So I spent a couple hours reaching out to companies such as Seventh Generation, Ecover and Dr. Bronners asking if they could donate some laundry essentials. To my surprise they all responded with very generous donations which included cases of product. It made us happy to know that not only will the local families be able to utilize the Laundry Love services, they will be able to utilize them while using products free of chemicals! All it took was a few hours and we were able to make a difference, such a great feeling.

I have gone ahead and included a link to the Laundry Love site if you would like to learn more.

If you or anyone you know may have any outreach suggestions please email me and as always, a big thank you to all of our amazing customers. You make this all possible!

 

Cheers,

Whitney

Blog Intro

Hey guys! I have been struggling with how I would go about introducing our blog. What type of voice would I have? What type of content we would bring to you? Would I fail all of our amazing customers? A little ridiculous I know but these thoughts have been holding me back. So please keep in mind I am not a professional writer but a healthy food lover who will occasionally (if not frequently) make some grammar and spelling mistakes.

 

Nathan and I are so thankful for all of you guys and how each and everyday our community continues to become healthier all while supporting our little health food store. It is all of you that have made our growth in the last couple of years possible. So what better way to show our appreciation than to give you a behind the scenes look at how we live our lives through food and other wellness tips!

 

If you have a question about any particular products we carry and want us to do some research for you? Drop us an email. Same thing for recipes, if you have a favorite dish that you need help making healthier… I love a good challenge in the kitchen :) 

 

Cheers,

Whitney
