Earth Day with Whole Earth

Earth Day is 40 years old this year and so is Whole Earth Provision Company! We celebrated the Earth Day anniversary all around Texas by participating in or hosting events during the week prior to Earth Day proper. Below are snapshots of those celebrations that took place in Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, and Houston.

Dallas – Shown above is Whole Earth staffer, James Olivarez, at our booth in downtown Dallas displaying just a few of the recycled, organic, or sustainable products available throughout our stores.

Dallas – Our Dallas store was presented with the above certificate for participating in the event.

Austin – Whole Earth staffers on the green at The Triangle, pausing to smile for the camera as attendees examine our environmentally conscious merchandise.

San Antonio – On the weekend prior to Earth Day, our store in the Alamo Quarry Market invited a group of representatives from some of our ‘greenest ‘ manufacturers to spend the afternoon demonstrating their products to our customers. Shown above is the rep from Keen Footwear and Smith Optics. Not shown are the reps from Osprey Packs and Klean Kanteen.
