I am a small-business owner and I am here to tell you that every day is a good day for shopping small.
- Shopping small is more sustainable because it reduces your carbon footprint
- Small businesses are usually more environmentally friendly than big corporations
- Shopping at a mom-and-pop store will make you feel like you're supporting an individual instead of a company, which makes shopping there even better!
- You can also find unique items that are made by hand and not mass produced in factories - no two shops will have the same inventory!
We want to support local businesses and we're doing just that! Here are a few of our favorite small businesses:
