AUSTIN, Texas (April 22, 2013) –Whole Foods Market continues its journey this month to encourage Earthlings – or humans inspired by the earth’s beauty and bounty – to contribute to and be inspired by EarthlingMonth.com, a real-time snapshot of the planet’s beauty and bounty with a new lifestyle theme each week. This week’s celebration is focused on energy.
Earthlings can visit earthlingmonth.com/#/participate to join the conversation around the type of energy they rely on (solar, wind, coffee?) by submitting a message, photo or video using Instagram, Facebook or Twitter. Or, simply use the hashtag #WFMEarthling via Twitter or Instagram.
Shoppers can also visit The Earthling Guide to learn about the simple ways to conserve energy. Check out the guide for tips such as:
