This year marks Down to Earth’s 40th Anniversary of service to Hawaii. Down to Earth began in 1977, in Wailuku, Maui, when a group of friends started our first store (pictured above), and shortly afterwards opened the King Street store. They did so out of a desire to help improve the health of Hawaii’s residents by making available organic and natural products at affordable prices (the slogan used to be, “Healthy foods at prices that won’t make you sick!”), and educating about the many benefits of living a vegetarian lifestyle.
