Thank You Everyone!

We believe that buying locally is the foundation of a sustainable local economy. In 2011, Seattle Good Business Network created Think Local, a three-year campaign that educated the public about the personal, economic and community benefits of thinking local first. Thousands of local residents and businesses participated, along with many local media partners. The campaign included fun photos of residents and local businesses with handwritten signs, over 100 full-page photo displays with our media partners, educational video and materials, an online directory at, and fun "think local" activities at numerous public events. It was our first program as a new organization -- a huge thank you to everyone that helped make it a great hit!
