July is Independents Month! 

4 reasons to buy local

July is Independents Month. 

Independents Month celebrates independent, locally-owned businesses and the community values they embody:

  • Their spirit of entrepreneurship, individuality, uniqueness, and character
  • How they give back to our community with their time, talents, goods, and services
  • How they fulfill community needs that make us healthier and wealthier

Independents Month is a fabulous time to:

  • Learn about what’s available locally
  • Consider the consequences of your choices
  • Shift some of your spending to align with your values

Call to Action!

Here are three additional things you can do:

  1. Take the Indie Pledge to shift at least 50% of your spending to independently-owned, local businesses for the month of July?
  2. Join the celebration by recording a short video of yourself inside your favorite small business in Rhode Island to be shared on social media to highlight the many amazing independent, locally-owned businesses. Send your video to jessica@localreturn.org
  3. And join us at our next Local Social on Thursday, August 1, to celebrate Independents Month.
