Welcome to The Earth Online Catalog
In 1969, a lot happened in the US. There was the Woodstock Music Festival, massive demonstrations against the Vietnam War, Nixon became president, Abbey Road and Easy Rider were released and we landed on the Moon. Amidst the social upheaval and cultural genesis in the final year of the 1960s, The Earth Natural Foods was born. And ever since 1969, The Earth has been providing organic foods and meals to the community of Norman, OK. Four decades later, Kate and Richard Haas are the fourth proprietors of the Earth and have been operating the health food store and cafe since 2002. Find the Norman location online here.
With The Earth Online Catalog, we want to embody the eco-conscious ethos of the The Earth Natural Foods and our love for our home planet. To that end, we emphasize products that align with our "Earthling Values," goods for Global Citizens with characteristics that positively impact our planet and humanity. Some of these values include Plastic-Free, Family-Owned, Vegan, Organic, GMO-Free, Fair Trade, Five or Less Ingredients, BIPOC Businesses, Women-Owned Businesses, B Corporations and companies that give back 1% for the Planet. Of course, we purvey foods and products with clean and non-toxic ingredients to keep our bodies and planet healthy: Organic and Non-GMO items mostly free of synthetic fragrances and palm oil. We see this online catalog as an opportunity to further empower consumers to vote with their dollar and to shop more intentionally, knowing more about the companies whose products you bring into your home. The Earth Online Catalog reflects our values and is a place for Earthlings to shop online. Please contact us with any feedback, suggestions or requests!
