The charity foundation, whose microloan recipients are primarily female, shares many of the same goals as the Renew Life brand, which is aimed at helping women be stronger in all aspects of life.
Renew Life has made a donation to Whole Planet Foundation to further its mission of helping aspiring entrepreneurs across the globe, many of whom lack the resources and financial support to be successful. The partnership will enable loan recipients to “create or expand a home-based business to lift themselves and their families out of poverty.”
Whole Planet Foundation was established in October of 2005, when Whole Foods Market® stores across the country took part in a 5% day to help establish the nonprofit organization. Their mission is to “empower the world’s poorest people” with the help of beneficial microloans; to date, they have funded nearly 3 million microloans totaling $70 million and helped 15 million microentrepreneurs and their families have a chance at a better life.
Eighty-eight percent of Whole Planet Foundation’s entrepreneurs are women, about whom we are passionate here at Renew Life. Our company was founded in 1997 by natural health and nutrition expert Brenda Watson, a female visionary who triumphed over her own personal struggle with chronic illness to bring her natural remedies to the world.
Because women are often left out of the health and wellness conversation, Renew Life has become a champion for women’s health and empowerment, based firmly in the belief that anything is possible with a strong foundation of health. We understand what a driving force women can be to the global economy, and we are honored to partner with Whole Planet Foundation to help them succeed.
Today, Renew Life continues to be a leader in digestive wellness, offering a comprehensive selection of quality products including the #1 women’s probiotic.† We believe that by formulating quality digestive wellness products and partnering with organizations like Whole Planet Foundation, we are helping to empower women across the globe to make an impact on their health so they can be stronger for life.
