Pardon the Mess...

This page is still in development. In the meantime, you can see some of our current and previous programs listed below.


Our Current Campaigns

Local Flavor Guides™: Local Flavor Guides™ are full color, easy-to-carry brochures that feature one-of-a-kind Colorado businesses just waiting to be discovered. Great for locals and visitors alike!
Buy Local Week: Our annual holiday campaign to focus more retail spending to local companies. For four years running, Buy Local Week has received support from the Mayor of Denver and Governor of Colorado, helping to raise awareness of the vital role of local companies.
Eat Local First: Full color guide featuring local farmers, markets, and the cafes and restaurants who source local food. Check out the Eat Local First guide.
Local Energy First: Only between 10 and 15 cents on the dollar spent on fuel stays in the local community. In the case of Colorado, much of this is imported. e.g. Coal from Wyoming. We started the Local Energy First program to help shift some of that revenue back home, among other reasons.

Our Past Campaigns

Bank Local First: A new campaign focused on "move your money" messaging and tools to focus more capital investment in local financial institutions.
  Colorado Local First for Retailers & Service Businesses: leveraging unique collateral, collective marketing and grassroots messaging to promote local businesses. Posters, stickers, counter cards and shopping bags are examples of free collateral we offer to members.
