Show Your Support!
Next time you shop with us, you'll have a great opportunity to recognize and support brands that have made the decision to become a "Down to Earth Preferred Brand." By purchasing these products you'll help advance the widespread adoption of a lifestyle based on organic, non-GMO, and vegetarian products, and encourage more vendors to become a "Down to Earth Preferred Brand." The special "Down to Earth Preferred Brand" logo will help you identify Preferred Brands that meet our stringent criteria:
- Must have products in at least two product categories (categories as defined by DTE)
- Must have at least 5 products that we carry
- Organic: All products must use all organic ingredients. If limited in using all organic ingredients due to market shortages, economics, etc., must use at least some organic ingredients
- GMO free: All products must be Non-GMO Project Verified (if they include at risk ingredients)
- Vegetarian: All products under the vendor's brand name must be vegetarian:
- They must not contain slaughtered animal ingredients, fish, poultry, or eggs
- They must not have been tested on animals
- Dairy products used as ingredients (e.g. cheese in cheese flavored chips) must be animal source rennet free.
- Natural: All products must be natural; i.e. no artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, additives, etc., minimally processed
