Why Local?

Why should I care that shirts are hand printed locally with non-toxic ocean-friendly ink?

Why does it matter that t-shirts, tanktops, and pint glasses are made in the USA and printed in Oregon?
Small businesses are the nation's largest employers. Local Business generates 70% more local economic activity per sq ft than big box retail. 68 of every 100 dollars spent locally, stays right here (compared to $48 with national chains). Local business owners invest in our local community.
Shop local. Spend local. Love local.
