What’s a GoodBomb? GoodBombs create positive impact in our communities. Where normal “bad bombs” blow stuff up, GoodBombs build stuff up. They are creative projects that aim to improve our environment, our communities, and the state of our world as a whole.
Buy Local Week 2013 is an annual celebration of local retailers, products, entrepreneurs and communities by LOCO BC, an alliance of businesses that help our local economy be the powerhouse it is today. Popular examples of LOCO BC members are Salt Spring Coffee, Cartems Donuterie, John Fluevog, The Soap Dispensary, BRITEweb, and others. According to them:
