CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF ORGANIC ACTIVISM
Good Earth is an independent natural and organic grocer with two stores in Marin County, California. We’ve proudly served the Marin community since 1969.
We were founded with the dream of offering the highest quality organic food that we could find. From our early days on 123 Bolinas Road to today, we’ve remained committed to advocating for a healthier and more sustainable food system.
Organic runs deep at Good Earth.
We hold organic certification as our fundamental quality standard because of the protections it provides for both people and the planet.
Organic foods are grown without chemical pesticides so they are easier on us and the environment.
Studies show that organic agriculture sequesters far more carbon in the soil than conventional, making it a viable solution to slowing climate change.
Organic foods are also the best way to avoid genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
We believe that USDA Organic Certification offers the most transparent and trackable framework to help us monitor how our food is grown and processed. All of our buyers are tasked with seeking out the best organic products available while working with suppliers to communicate and educate around the importance of organic within our food system.
Throughout our stores, we offer foods grown and prepared using a minimum of processing and no chemical pesticides, herbicides, or food additives. If we cannot meet this ideal with a certain food item, we get as close as possible, and make as much noise as we can to change it for the better.
