On Earth Day, April 22, all Whole Foods Market stores will have a one-day sale on organic produce. Customers will receive $5 off any purchase of $25 or more of organic produce.
Whole Foods Market is celebrating Earth Day with organic produce for its many environmental benefits. Organic farming does not use environmentally harmful chemicals that may contaminate rain and groundwater; and this growing method replenishes and maintains healthy, fertile topsoil with rich biological matter, which limits erosion and impact on waterways.
Other organic standards include no toxic or persistent pesticides or herbicides, no sewer sludge or synthetic fertilizers, no GMOs, no antibiotics, no synthetic growth hormones and no irradiation.
