Communities have a strong, sustainable economic life when money and resources are retained within. Nittany Co-Op increases Happy Valley’s resources because we partner with locally owned and controlled businesses and organizations. Jobs, profits, and resources circulate in the community longer because our members and vendors within the cooperative circle are community members themselves. Regardless if they have long-standing histories in the area or are local entrepreneurs looking to bring value with new ideas, our partners all support the local community through a variety of means.
In partnering with businesses that provide eco-friendly products or have made the commitment to run their operations in an environmentally friendly way, we strive to be part of the solution towards a better world for future generations. We can help provide your organization with certified eco-friendly cleaning or paper products, organic or natural foods, renewable energy resources, products consisting of recycled materials, and services utilizing manufacturing processes beneficial to the physical environment. If you have the desire to truly be ‘green’ but don’t know exactly how to get there without added expense, contact us for assistance.
