It’s all about community! Where we live, what we do, how we buy, what we buy-each of us makes a difference in our local economy as we make every effort to support local businesses operated by our friends, neighbors and family. And by the way, it’s great for our planet.
All this time I thought I was just being stubborn when I took a stand to avoid purchases from companies whose policies were apart from my own. Now they call it, ‘Conscious Consumerism’. Money spent within our communities-especially dollars spent at locally owned businesses-typically stays longer within our communities, so long as it continues to be spent within them. I’m fully behind it. As the saying goes, Shop Local, Buy Local, Eat Local.
Indianapolis has welcomed Natural Awakenings as a healthy living and sustainable community magazine, and I’m proud to be able to financially support individuals here at home including local writers, designers, a distribution team, and even a local printer. I’m so grateful to the team and our community for supporting our mission!
Take a stand whenever you are called to, question everything, support local, and know that your choices and actions define the tomorrows in Indianapolis.
With a Heart Full of Appreciation,
Nancy Caniff, publisher
