NEW YORK, Sept. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Weleda – pioneers of 100% certified-natural skincare, proudly announces its nationwide partnership with the Whole Kids Foundation. For the third year, Weleda is teaming up with Whole Foods Market to give back, marking $30K in donations in the past three years to Whole Planet and Whole Kids Foundations.
Weleda will donate $1 to Whole Kids Foundation (up to $10K) for every Weleda baby care product purchased at Whole Foods Market throughout the month of September, in an effort to support healthier kids and inspire families to teach children how to love fresh, nutritious whole foods.
To further support the initiative, Whole Foods Market and Weleda will be offering a 30% discount off the entire Weleda Baby & Child Calendula line and the new Baby Derma White Mallow Collection.
“We’re thrilled to enter our third year of partnership with Whole Foods Market,” said Jasper Van Brakel, CEO of Weleda North America. “We support Whole Kids Foundation’s mission to promote school gardens and provide healthy choices for our children, because for Weleda, healthy choices include skincare products for babies and kids that are not only natural but also made with nourishing ingredients we grow in our own gardens.”
