Whole Foods Giving Back to Brooklyn

After 10 long years of planning, Whole Foods opened Tuesday in Brooklyn, located on Third and 3rd near the putrid Gowanus canal Brooklyn Whole Foods Market Goes Greenopened. While there has been a some who did not want to see the store open in Brooklyn, Whole Foods started off by giving back to the community in which they opened.

They have started a program called “Fund a Fig,” all purchases of specially designed reusable bags will go to planting fig trees throughout the borough. In addition the first 5% in sales is being donated to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. Staying active in the borough that so many have such deep love for is a way to stay part of the community.
