SBN is proud to be a founding member of North America’s Business Alliance for Local Living Economics, or BALLE, and BALLE’s Greater Philadelphia Regional Hub.
BALLE (pronounced “bah-lee”) is the fastest growing national alliance of socially responsible businesses in North America. It is comprised of over 80 community networks in 30 U.S. states and Canadian provinces representing over 22,000 independent business members across the U.S. and Canada.
BALLE has chosen four Hub Networks from four parts of the country to deliver network support services both in their regions of the country and according to their unique experience. SBN Philadelphia is proud to be one of the first BALLE Regional Hubs. The other three Regional Hubs include Local First in Grand Rapids, MI, Santa Fe Alliance in Santa Fe, NM, and Sustainable Connections in Bellingham, WA.
