There’s something I’m really embarrassed about. Few would ever suspect that an organic-eating, sunshine-loving, walk-to-the-grocery-store girl like me wouldn't know how to ride a bike, but there it is. Blame it on my parents, blame it on me, but one way or another I managed to get to 26 without ever gliding down a sidewalk on two wheels. Don’t feel too badly. I have learned a few things in my time. I can pull out Virgil and read the original Latin. I can hula-hoop from all appendages. And, if I may say so, I can bake a mean cake.
Things are easier said than done, the old adage goes, and we couldn't agree more. That's why we started the GOOD 30-Day Challenge, a monthly attempt to live better. This month's challenge: Unplug at 8.
We love small businesses. They build community, boost local economies, highlight regional culture, and produce lower emissions than big corporations. We also love Etsy. The online marketplace gives independent artists an opportunity to share their talents with buyers across the world. When we found out our crafty friends were planning Hello Etsy, a summit on small business and sustainability, we wanted to get involved. GOOD and Etsy are teaming up on this project to celebrate small business. So tell us, which local businesses do you love?
the THEME Let's meet the fruit vendor on your corner, the baker who makes your favorite blueberry muffin, the handyman you call to fix a leak. We think it's great to put a face to a product. Let us see who's responsible for your favorite local goods and services.
