OUR PRINCIPLES AND VALUES

I BUY LOCAL is a supportive, independently-focused, innovative and research-led platform designed to:

1. Raise awareness of local and independent businesses, their brand and their products;
2. Make it easy and convenient for customers to buy directly from local and independent businesses;
3. Create a greater sense of community by helping new and existing customers get to know the people behind the business.
We achieve this through:

TREATING EVERYONE WITH RESPECT
We do not tolerate prejudice or discrimination in any form. We work with consumers and businesses to be inclusive in all aspects of our business.

COLLABORATION
We believe we’re better together. We’re committed to working collaboratively and in partnership to find the best, most considered and supportive solutions to help us all to grow.

TREATING THE ENVIRONMENT WITH RESPECT
We believe it’s everyone’s responsibility to reduce their environmental impact. We work with consumers and businesses to help them be more considerate and respectful of the environment. We consider, track and manage our environmental impact and seek to work regeneratively.

THINKING LOCALLY, ACTING GLOBALLY
Mass consumption has led to many using global services that offer convenience and variety of choice. However, these services do not contribute as much to regional economy as buying directly from local and independent businesses - #NotAnotherMarketplace. We support local communities by creating opportunities to help consumers find the convenience and variety they need from local and independent businesses.

CONSTANTLY LEARNING
We’re a research-led company who equally leverages substantial experience to create change. We believe in creating opportunities which enable everyone to realise their full potential. We are keen to learn and evolve and we recognise the importance of feedback as part of the process.
