Since we opened in 1977 we have supported the living of a healthy lifestyle and the preservation of the environment by selling local, fresh, organic & natural products, and by promoting the living of a vegetarian lifestyle.
Down to Earth has a 40-year history of supporting local vendors, a commitment that is unflinching and will continue to grow. For example, Down to Earth typically purchases over $3 million in products from 400 local vendors including over 100 farmers and growers each year! We strongly support local farmers through our policy of purchasing virtually all the produce they are willing to sell us—even if it’s only a crate full.
The reason we do this is simple:
Customers prefer local produce because it is fresher and better for the environment. It consumes less energy in transporting products to our islands. Purchasing from local vendors supports our local communities, and we appreciate the opportunity to help farmers succeed.
