Spread the word: 3/50 Project

the 3/50 project for the local economy | simple pretty

I read about the 3/50 project at Pam’s blog, housemartin, this morning and it’s so simple, and yet genius. Pick 3 independent stores you are a fan of, and commit to spending $50 a month (in total) at those stores. My bakery habit pretty much has me covered, but I do try to support the local option whenever possible. Learn more at the 3/50 website.

    This makes it so easy to see the potential impact of such a simple action. I’ll definitely spread the word.
