Small Biz and Green Biz

November 25, 2015
Happy Thanksgiving, dear readers.  One of the coolest ideas to come along for the holiday season (and a good excuse to stay home from crazy shopping this Friday) is Small Business Saturday on November 28.  American Express gets a lot of credit for initiating it in 2010 to encourage people to patronize their locally owned and operated small businesses.  It has grown into a movement and each year, has grown, well, bigger!
Check out the site for links to businesses in your area and look for signs and ads promoting the opportunity to spend some “green” in your neighborhood.  There are many benefits to shopping local, including helping to create jobs in your community.   And according to Sustainable Connections, “Locally owned businesses can make more local purchases requiring less transportation and generally set up shop in town or city centers as opposed to developing on the fringe. This generally means contributing less to sprawl, congestion, habitat loss and pollution.” Read more.
