The Ourlando movement is about the spirit of community and the enrichment this brings to it’s citizens through the support of a vibrant local living economy, it’s diverse culture and our pride of place.
Ourlando “locally made” is a local first campaign developed by the Progressive Local Alliance for Community Enrichment (PLACE). Rather than simply promoting “buying” local, we are suggesting our larger role as stewards. By thinking local, we can make choices that have dramatic impact on our local communities, economies & environments.
The Ourlando movement encompasses far more than just our local indy businesses; it promotes and unites our diverse art, music, recreation, and health & wellness communities and, most importantly, engages our citizens with pride of place.
