Why + Where to Shop Small in 2023!
15 Nov, 2023 · · Comments
As you know, things have been difficult and world events have been really heavy at best.
And it has been a tough year for small businesses as well and we have watched a lot of our favorite small businesses struggle.
It can all feel a little paralyzing. But the good news is that we can make big things change by starting small.
When we support the people, causes, and small businesses we love - including their big dreams and families - we get to directly impact and help to build the world that we want to live in.
This year more than ever, we are going to continue to support small businesses, especially BIPOC owned small businesses, to actively contribute to the things that matter most to us.
I hope you'll join us in supporting small businesses for our holiday presents but also for our everyday purchases.
As well as donating to and/or spending time volunteering and making calls for what is most important to you.
And while your support of large companies might go unnoticed, your continued support of small businesses like ours makes huge and lasting impact.
It is so important for us to support the kind of world we all want to live in, so thank you for supporting our and other small businesses.
- Can you switch your coffee from a big name brand to a smaller (and tastier) roaster? We love Little Waves Coffee.
- Can you skip the Target candle and get the most delicious smelling Bright Black Candle instead?
- Grab books for the kids from Liberation Station Bookstore instead of Amazon?
- And you can gift happy plant parenthood via our plant kits to someone who thinks they can't keep plants alive because they keep trying to “save” the glued down and spray painted plants from home improvement stores.
Yair and I started Tierra Sol Studio for two reasons:
First, because we wanted other people who felt like plant killers to be able to have happy and healthy plants - after we figured out how to keep plants alive by testing which plants did best in a variety of indoor conditions in our planters we made for the needs of each plant with the lowest amount of care possible - and we wanted to share that with other people so it would be easy for
And second, because we wanted to make things better for as many people as we could.
To build a business where we can be together as a family in a workspace that is a safe and heathy space for all of us.
And we could not do any of that without you.
Thank you for everything you do!
