Aloha, and a Happy New Year.

As we announced in our last newsletter, our newly revamped website launched at the end of last year. The website has great resources to help you live a healthy lifestyle, and I encourage you to check it out and use it; there are articles, recipes, links, and more.

Along with promoting the eating of a healthy diet centered on organic and natural foods, Down to Earth promotes the living of a vegetarian lifestyle and we explain the many reasons to go vegetarian in our publications. We do this out of a sincere desire to help others to lead better lives and to try and make the world a better place. Down to Earth is actually very unique; there are only a handful of vegetarian stores throughout the nation, something we would like to see change over the coming year and decade. Going vegetarian is better for your health, for the environment, and of course, it is better for the animals.

We promote a vegetarian lifestyle via our website, my blog (I get a little opinionated at times – but don’t let that put you off, please check it out), and in our stores by the products we sell and the various messages and signage we have displayed throughout the stores.

And of course, you don’t need to be a vegetarian to shop at our stores. Down to Earth is for everyone, as everyone will benefit from the natural and organic foods and related products we sell.

Mahalo for shopping with us.

Mark Fergusson

Love Life! Love animals, don’t eat them.
