Great Falls high schooler, Hallie Thompson, is on a mission to really inspire people to be conscious about what they're buying and how it's going to affect not only them, but the planet.

"I just think that it's also made people kind of wake up a bit and realize how important some of this stuff can be," Thompson said.

Her mission of caring for yourself and the planet couldn't wait for the pandemic to pass.

"I really wanted to spread my message of health food and an eco-friendly business," said Thompson.

Although she'd like to make a profit this season, her real business goals are rooted i the impact she has in her community.

"I do want to make some money but mostly I just want to be out here spreading my mission and being out here," she told MTN News.

Wholesome Hals' Facebook page, says Hallie Thompson took second in the Electric City Shark Tank competition with her Wholesome Hal idea. Again, all at the age of 16.
