Non-GMO and Fair Trade Month - What, Why, and How

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.

Life Foods: Our Favorite New Brand!

I'm very excited to introduce Life Foods, Inc., one of our favorite new brands in the store. Life Foods is a Maui-based company that makes wonderfully delicious superfood products including veggie burgers, condiments, hot sauces, salad dressings and vegetable ferments. Life Foods was founded on Maui in 2013 and continues to expand throughout the islands (and soon mainland distribution!). They source as much as possible from local Maui farms to support our island agriculture and to bring you the freshest, most nutrient-dense foods possible.
