The Buy Local Baltimore campaign is a project of the Chesapeake Sustainable Business Alliance (www.csballiance.org).
We are an alliance that educates the public on the importance of supporting the local economy, and encourages businesses and consumers to be environmentally sustainable and socially responsible.
We envision a sustainable global economy as a network of Local Living Economies, building long-term economic empowerment and prosperity in communities through local business ownership, economic justice, cultural diversity and a healthy natural environment. Independent businesses create wealth by engaging local people in the production, marketing, and consumption of goods, they pay taxes, and reinvest in our communities.
We educate the public to:
reduce material and energy costs
recycle and reuse waste
buy and sell locally
By limiting the environmental impacts of doing business, we aim places for future generations to enjoy.
CSBA is a member of the BALLE network: an international alliance of independently operated local business networks dedicated to building Local Living Economies. Visit www.livingeconomies.org for more information.
