When it comes to “buying local,” co-ops wrote the book. That’s because cooperatives are homegrown by everyday people who join together to solve a problem or meet a need. Did you know the co-ops in your community are owned and democratically controlled by people just like you? Cooperatives are part of America’s do-it-yourself tradition. With a proven track record, cooperatives are everywhere, in every industry, including credit unions, farmer co-ops, energy co-ops, food co-ops, and more!
October is Co-op Month, a celebration of the many ways co-ops are building better communities through the power of cooperation.
