The Business Alliance for Local Living Economies

BalleBuying local supports businesses in your community and ensures that more of your cash stays in your own backyard. It’s more personal, and buying locally-made products cuts out CO2 emissions from shipping. Some great North American chefs have built their menus around local and seasonal food, which is usually tastier. Buying local also applies to fashion. Wearing local designers is a surefire way to avoid looking like everyone else.

Living Economies start with entrepreneurs coming together to form a local network. The network's main focus might be a single issue, such as independent retail (a Local First campaign) or rebuilding local and regional food systems. Or, it might be bigger, such as transforming an entire regional economy. Each network evolves according to the needs, contours, and conditions of the local community with the ultimate goal of building a Living Economy. BALLE meets each network where it is, connects it with other networks, and, if the network chooses, provides opportunities for growth, learning, and greater impact. 

Read about the great variety of BALLE networks springing up around the US and Canada.

The Business Alliance for Local Living Economies is the portal for all things local.
