Art is a unique expression, and one that 12-year-old Jordan Hessler takes seriously, especially now that his creative work is gracing the front of tote bags being sold at Whole Foods Market.
The Coral Springs, Fla., resident’s recent drawing of his idea of South Florida “nature” was chosen as the winning design out of several submitted by local children. More than 100 Whole Foods Market customers voted for their favorite design via ballots, and Hessler’s is now featured on limited edition canvas tote bags, available exclusively at Whole Foods Market in Coral Springs. The tote bags went on sale April 22 (Earth Day) and are available while supplies last.
The bags are $7.99 each and $2 from each bag benefits Whole Kids Foundation, which supports schools and inspires families to improve children’s nutrition and wellness. The primary goal of the foundation is to end childhood obesity. The Coral Springs store launched the tote bag design contest to encourage local children to express their views of South Florida nature through art.
Whole Foods Market Coral Springs is located at 810 University Dr.
