Colorado is huge when it comes to shopping local. Buy your food at a natural grocery store, eat at a food to table restaurant, adopt from a local shelter, etc. I’ve always wanted to do all those things because it helps support small businesses and it’s typically better for you in the long run, even if it’s a little more costly. I love supporting local businesses.
Everything I do with Good Sugar Baking has been well thought out with local small businesses in mind. Sometimes it makes sense, but sometimes it just costs too much money and unfortunately as a startup, small business myself I have to consider finances more than I’d like to. I have lucked out with a lot of things though, like having really awesome wooden spatulas made by a good friend of mine, and getting thank you cards made by someone I met when I first moved to Colorado who does some really great design work. I love supporting people I know, especially when they’re doing their own thing as well. We need all the support we can get, so it makes sense to work together!
I’m so glad I’m able to partner with nonprofits that want to support me as well. Next month I have a new featured nonprofit and I’m excited to have the chance to work with them! Stay tuned for who that nonprofit is!!
