Shop Small, Shop Sustainable on November 26

This Saturday, celebrate the more than 200 Sustainable Small Businesses in southwestern PA by “shopping small” during Small Business Saturday on November 26 and throughout the holiday season!  These businesses are part of Sustainable Pittsburgh’s Sustainable Small Business Designation program.

Sustainable Pittsburgh is a Neighborhood Champion for Small Business Saturday, an initiative piloted by American Express and officially recognized by the US Senate in 2011. Following “Black Friday”, Small Business Saturday is a day when consumers are encouraged to complete their holiday shopping at small, local businesses like those in our Sustainable Small Business network.

Shop and show your support for Sustainable Small Businesses! Share your activity with us on Facebook and Twitter, @SWPA_SustSmlBiz. Use #SustainableSmallBiz when posting your Small Business Saturday posts to social media so that we can share your message.
