Winning Green: Whole Foods and Earth Month

To celebrate Earth Month, Whole Foods Market is giving away two trips for two to the vibrant, tropical campus of EARTH University, a nonprofit university in Costa Rica that also grows bananas for our stores.
Through April 30, shoppers can visit to enter for a chance to win an eight-day Costa Rican adventure through and around its lush rainforests and majestic Arenal volcano. Winners and their guests will also explore the university’s on-campus banana fields, meet students who are studying to become agricultural leaders and see, first-hand, how EARTH University bananas are making a real difference for students, growers and the environment.
Every time shoppers choose to buy EARTH University bananas at our stores, they’re helping to fund student scholarships and support research in organic and sustainable agriculture. EARTH bananas are also backed by Whole Foods Market’s Whole Trade program, which means that the product ensures fair prices to producers, better wages and working conditions for farm workers, environmentally-friendly growing practices, and a donation to the Whole Planet Foundation to fund poverty relief.
