The Non-GMO Project is constantly surprising us with fun, innovative ways to teach about the importance of Non-GMO labeling. See below for a fun free downloadable Coloring Book that might be more suited for an Adult Coloring Night with friends over Zoom.

October is a special month this year as Down to Earth is celebrating the annual Non-GMO Month and Fair Trade month. These two labels can be found on many products on our shelves and we are proud to support brands that are certified Non-GMO or Fair Trade because it means supporting companies that are dedicated to what is pono for our communities, our environment, and our future.
Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, the naturally-occurring chemical compound in cannabis plants, is now on our shelves! HB1819 was passed at the Hawaii State Legislature this year and Governor Ige signed it into law as Act 014 in August. This is great news for Hawaii because it is now legal for our farmers to apply to the U.S. Department of Agriculture to become licensed to grow, process, and sell hemp products. It also means Down to Earth can source the best hemp and CBD products and stock it for you!
