Making a Difference

One kitchen or bath at a time!

What influences your purchasing decisions?

City004

 

 

Does a company’s history or narrative help you make a decision to do business with them or is it incidental?

If a company has an eco story do we assume they’re shouting it from the rooftops? Do you care?

Do you go out of your way to buy products made in the USA? Why or why not?

Do you tend to favor manufacturers you see at #KBtribechat? Do you go out of your way to do business with them? Why or why not?

Can we make the world a better place with our purchasing decisions?
