  • Think Local First campaign How-To Kit: This successful campaign has changed the purchasing behaviors of 3 in 5 local households in our community and is being replicated in dozens of communities across the country.

  • DVD: We have three different versions available. 2005 does a good job of laying out our work and programs in a way that makes sense for a business audience. (It even includes the WA State Governor saying she wants to see our work emulated throughout the State.) 2006 also walks viewers through our programs but does it in a more light hearted way that showcases the fun and human connections that are at the core of our work. 2007 describes our various programs and accomlishments using stories and quotes from our members.
    $15 each (includes shipping in the USA)
