Small Business Saturday

Small Business Saturday
Saturday, November 26, 2022 is Small Business Saturday. We celebrate small business and small brands every day, but it’s great to have the world give us a shout out. Small businesses and brands do so much for our communities so let’s bring them some holiday cheer today and forever onward.

In case you need them, here are some reasons to celebrate small businesses and brands:

1. Growing companies, some that started, like Alpine Provisions, in our founder’s garage, making soap by hand, create eco-systems that enable other small businesses to grow.

2. Entrepreneurs make more entrepreneurs. Small businesses are a local training ground for all kinds of innovation and skills. They make the business ecosystem better.

3. Smaller businesses and brands usually have more transparency in ingredients, materials, and sourcing products. They are more concerned with human care. We know this to be true of us, and it’s a reason to cheer.

4. Smaller brands usually have a better customer experience because they have a personal touch and they care.

5. Small businesses make diversity. That’s human diversity, but biodiversity too. We support the farmers who support the land.

And here’s some suggestions on how to support your small local faves:

1. Look around at your local scene and discover new brands. One of the things that makes me the most happy is finding our products in a local natural business and realizing that people who have never tried them are going to be enchanted with the quality, scent, and packaging.

2. Send gifts. If the people you love don’t know about the businesses and brands you cherish, get them hooked. Send them a surprise that has a lasting impact.

3. Rethink your shopping. Buy local, small, and diverse. Support businesses who support the community, the land, and the world. Check out Diaspora Co. for the best black pepper you have ever tasted, sourced directly and supporting local farmers. Then gear yourself up with Hightail Gear for a great hike or a good lounge.
