Why You Should Support Local & Small Businesses This Holiday Season

As the hustle of holiday shopping commences, we wanted to share a personal note from our founder, Danielle, to celebrate Small Business Saturday:

"From Buds, Blooms & Beyond, my momma's flower shop in Tampa, to Artisan's World Marketplace, a fair trade shop in Sarasota, to a spa in Asheville or yoga studio in Brooklyn or California, we are grateful for our small businesses. Our appreciation is endless because we wouldn't be here without the hundreds of small businesses that are a part of the Conscious Coconut family. We honor their love & commitment to their local communities not only as an employer but as a neighbor and a friend. So, this weekend, hit the town or shop online for Small Business Saturday! It's a day where you can return the love this holiday season, because shopping small makes a BIG difference. And because we share a similar mission and values as our CoCo family, know that you're not only helping your local businesses this Saturday but hungry kids in the area as well. We're donating two meals to Feeding America for every product sold at your local grocer, spa, yoga studio, boutique, hotel, coffee or juice shop. Have a wonderful holiday season!"

'It's more important than ever to shop small this season to ensure that all of our favorite small businesses are still ready and able to serve our communities for years to come. The families that stand behind small businesses are so excited to share the hand selected items they have thoughtfully chosen in hopes that others can delight in them as well.'
