Daily Inspiration Quote

This is just a reminder to please recycle, never throw away things like clothing. Someone can always turn it into something magical; and if they can’t than do your research and find somewhere you can donate your items and they will not just be trashed:

Consider all the small business that surround you now, how they have thrived with customers just like you.The time, commitment, and effort that these small business have put into staying alive is worth your support. The personal commitment that folks put into their  small businesses show in the hands on customer service they give, the packaging in their products,  and the effort they have gone to to make unique handmade products for you to give to your loved ones.

Local businesses are also more likely to give back to the community.Small businesses bring economic advantages; when you buy local more money stays within the community. One Chicago study found that for every $100 spent at a local business, $68 remained in the city while only $43 of each $100 spent at a chain retailer. Also, when local residents shop at small businesses within their communities, their tax dollars stay within the local economy, helping to improve their community as a result.

Also , I have preached wholly on why buying handmade benefits you, the economy, the earth, and so many other ways, but here are a few reasons why you should consider handmade:

  • No 2 handmade items are exactly the same, each is unique and special, and you own the honor of having the only one like it.
  • Handmade products are usually made in a more environmentally sustainable way than mass produced ones.
  • Handmade items are not made by children in sweatshops in Third World countries making 10 cents a day. Experienced and trained crafts-folk are making your items; and while you may pay a bit more, this reason alone should inspire you to support handmade.
  • When you take your money and hand it to a handmade artisan, you are saying ” I support what  you do” and you are supporting quality over the quantity of huge conglomerates.
