After the pandemic, small businesses have suffered dramatically. Whilst normal life has resumed for most of us, many small businesses continue to struggle as the cost of living rises.
Small businesses are crucial, creating jobs and contributing to the economic health of a neighbourhood. As a thoughtful consumer, the simple act of purchasing something from your favourite coffee shop, plant store or small clothing boutique can go a long way in keeping these businesses afloat.
The call for support has never been louder, and if you are able to contribute, this Small Business Saturday is just another opportunity to show up. Shop our small business guide, containing amazing beauty, skin-care, and home decor brands to get you started.
