Buy Local

When you support locally-owned businesses more money is directed to your community’s economic base. Local businesses are an integral part of the distinctive character of Dunn County community. These shops and restaurants are owned by people who are more invested in the community’s future. Purchasing local products reduces pollution, prevents urban sprawl, eliminates traffic congestion, and slows habitat loss. Check out the Downsville Visitors Guide for a list of local businesses and recommended restaurants.

Fair Trade

A market-based approach to empowering farmers and craftspeople in developing countries, fair trade offers them a fair price for their products. Fair trade promotes sustainability, equitable social and environmental standards, and a living wage in emerging economies. The strategic intent is to help marginalized workers move from a position of vulnerability to one of economic self-sufficiency, as they become stakeholders in their own organizations and actively achieve greater equity through contentious international trade standards.
