Jess and I became members of an awesome Co-op in town. And we got a sweet bag! I think I’m more excited about the bag than anything else. We paid the lowest fee but if you pay more I think there are opportunities for you to have a more hands on role in the Co-op. If you don’t know what a Co-op is here is a quote from the website of the Co-op we joined:
"Simply put, a cooperative is a business owned and managed by its members. The structure is to pool resources to satisfy a common need while providing goods and services as economically and efficiently as possible. As locally owned businesses, co-ops are committed to the people they serve and the communities in which they live.
Owners can have a voice in what is sold to them, as well as in the overall organization of their particular co-op. Owners get the most buying power for their money and the money stays in the community, contributing to its economic strength.”
