We're proud to announce the redesign of the SBN Sustainable Business Directory in partnership with SBN member, Message Agency!

In December, we will launch a revamped online directory to replace our current one. This new directory will have a cleaner, more streamlined look, making it visually-appealing, while still offering all the functions you've come to know and love such as member highlights and ad space.

In connection with this move, we will discontinue our printed directory, and go paperless. This will help us to be more sustainable in our practices.

Our new online directory will allow us to feature our business members in a dynamic way that is constantly up to date, and easy to use.

The new directory will be:

  • Simpler to navigate
  • Easier to update
  • Mobile-friendly
  • Visually-appealing

As the project unfolds in the coming months, we'll have more updates to share.

We will still be offering ad space and new, exciting ways to promote your business to an even larger audience!

Money spent at locally-owned businesses:

► circulates longer in the local economy
► increases the economic multiplier to grow prosperity in Philadelphia’s communities

Plus, small businesses are more likely to:

►be accountable to customers and the community
►support local charities
►safeguard the environment

"I love how this movement, our movement, promotes more people having ownership stake in our economy, and how an emphasis on local sourcing ensures that success will be shared with multiple stakeholders."
