| Natural Lifestyle

As the end of April is approaching, we want to give one last shoutout to those who contribute to raising environmental consciousness. Our planet Earth is one of only eight planets in the cosmic solar system and is the only known place in the universe able to support life1. It surely plays a critical role in our universe. Since 1977, Down to Earth has been talking about the environmental and health benefits of "going veggie”. This is simply one way that Down to Earth supports a wholesome lifestyle that gives back to our planet. It is backed by our pledge to provide local, fresh, organic, and natural produce, our sustainability in-stores, our educational materials on our website, our delicious vegetarian eats, and our mission and values. All of which collectively support the urge to Malama the Aina every day! It's more important than ever to help preserve our planet for future generations.

Imagine your gut is like a bustling city inside you, with trillions of residents – tiny microbes that are invisible to the eye and just doing their thing. They’re not just freeloading, though; they’re hard at work. They help digest your food, sure, but they’re also like the unsung heroes behind your immune system, your mood, and even how well you sleep.
