Our mission is to support a network of locally owned, independent businesses and producers that are sustainable and ethical to uphold the strength, vibrancy and diversity of Cascadian communities while preventing the displacement of community-rooted businesses by national and global chains.
Our latest project aims to raise awareness of products that are made or grown sustainably and ethically within Cascadia. Engaging with local businesses and growers, we will create an open source “Made in Cascadia” regional directory and brand. We plan to give a pack of digital assets to members of this network that can be used in promotional material and packaging. In return, we will help promote these businesses and products with the ultimate aim of being able to certify local companies as having high ethical and environmental standards.
