is proud to announce their latest collaboration with key retail partner, Whole Foods Market. For the remainder of 2016 and beyond we will donate 5% of our sales from all Whole Foods locations to support the supermarket giant’s Whole Planet Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides grants to micro-finance institutions (MFI), working to alleviate poverty around the globe.
Whole Planet Foundation
was established in 2006 and has made it's mission to provide financial assistance to groups that offer services to low income populations through an array of products and services, including credits and loans, or MFI’s. The foundation seeks to reduce poverty by providing monetary loans in communities that supply Whole Foods Market stores with product. Whole Planet aids the poorest micro entrepreneurs, generally family-owned businesses which employ small quantities of workers. When choosing its partners, the organization carefully selects those who will offer not only monetary funds for micro-credits, but other services as well, such as literary workshops, trainings or health services. To date, the Whole Planet Foundation
supports over 1.5 million entrepreneurs in 68 countries through its initiatives.
We are so happy to be a part and contribute to such a wonderful foundation that has similar core values to Surya Solidarity
and our beliefs in giving back! You can take part in this effort by purchasing Surya Brasil
products from Whole Foods locations or by donating here
