You know we’re all about supporting our local businesses in CBUS, which is why we’re excited for Earth Day this Fri., April 22. 🌎

This year’s Earth Day initiative is centered around investing in our planet — and there are lots of ways buying locally supports sustainability. To promote this goal within our community, we are introducing you to our #BuyLocalBuyGreenCBUS campaign.

To celebrate the global initiative, we are challenging youand ourselves — to only shop locally for one week. Or, at least try to swap out a few basic purchases with local options.

What would this look like? Think: Starting your morning with a trip to Roosevelt Coffeehouse, stopping by the Clintonville Farmers’ Market for local produce on Saturday, or perusing spring fashion at Ohio Thrift Store.

We want to follow along with your journey, as well as share ours with you. To do so, we are asking you to share photos of your local purchases, shopping sprees, or other Earth Day activities on social media using the hashtag #BuyLocalBuyGreenCBUS. Throughout the week, we will spotlight what our community is up to in our newsletters + social feeds.
