Purchasing for People and Planet
Our Mission is to support the grassroots growth of a social procurement ecosystem for the USA. We do this by bringing together business, government and institutional buyers and facilitating the purchase of their everyday goods and service needs from certified social enterprise and fair-trade business sellers. We share knowledge, we help educate, make connections and share best practices - both in the United States and around the world.
The United States is a unique country with differing state laws and no single business entity type for a social enterprise – it is also a country where grassroots impact work is strong and vibrant. When we founded Buy Social USA we wanted to support the local, regional and national ecosystems and provide a network of solutions to the barriers that could stand in the way of a thriving social procurement solution. For this reason we chose a network of networks approach.
