Supporting a Local, Living Economy
In collaboration with the West Marin Chamber of Commerce and Marin Organic, we initiated "Think Local First," a campaign that's educating residents and the more than 2 million annual visitors to West Marin about the benefits of buying local products and supporting small, independent businesses.
THINK LOCAL FIRST
Why shop locally?
When you shop at local businesses, like Point Reyes Books, you also support the local community.
