Write a love letter to a local business

This week we are encouraging you (and us!) to write a thank you letter to your favorite local leader or legislative representative, small business, charity or social enterprise advocating for sustainable and ethical practices. You can always add a donation, or make a small purchase if it fits with you too.

Running a business ethically is really hard work especially in the current climate and speaking out for science, human rights and our environment tends to be fraught with a surprising amount of blowback. Let’s say thank you to those who inspire us, who we’re grateful for and who we’re really glad exist. Write up an email, letter, post a card or pop through a little gift, and remember to share their posts, participate in any actions they create and support them when they’re fighting for what we all need in this world.

Who are you going to thank? We’d love to see some tagging of appreciation here too!
