Shop Local - Support Local Small Businesses

What is Seattle Good Business Network?

Seattle Good Business Network is an aspiring network of like-minded people who believe that local, independent businesses are the heart and soul of a sustainable local economy.

Our organization is new...ish. Driven by a vision of a network of local businesses that would support each other in building a healthy local economy, and inspired by the work of Sustainable Connections in Bellingham, Christine Hanna and Colleen Butler formed Seattle Good Business Network in early 2010. After discussions with the leadership of BALLE Seattle - an organization that had held the space for a sustainable business network since 2002 - a plan was hatched to re-form BALLE Seattle under new leadership as Seattle Good Business Network.
In 2010, with support from a Steering Committee of local business leaders and a number of experienced advisors, we refined the organization's vision, purpose, and role. In 2011, we launched our anchor program, Think Local, and by mid-year, had over 150 participating businesses. As we build a critical mass of business members, we will develop a cohesive set of activities and programs centered around our mission to connect, promote, and empower local, independent businesses in the stewardship of our place.

The Network is an affiliate of the national Business Alliance for Local Living Economies (BALLE), North America’s fastest growing network of socially responsible businesses, comprised of over 80 community networks representing 22,000 independent business members across 30 U.S. States and Canadian provinces. While each network is unique to its place, collectively BALLE networks create local living economies through the building blocks of independent retail, sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, green building, local zero-waste manufacturing, community capital, independent media, and local arts and culture.
