Some Student Ideas for "Patronize Small Business" Week

For those who haven't heard yet, the Nader/Camejo Campaign have designated Aug. 22-26 to be PATRONIZE SMALL BUSINESSES week. Here are a few ideas for how Students can participate:
1. Avoid Fast Food. Instead of going to McDonalds & Taco Bell, go to one of your local restaurants or buy groceries from a small town grocer.
2. Avoid Commercial Bars. If you and your friends want a drink go to the local, independant bar. While you're there, mention to the bartender that its "Patronize Small Businesses Week" and ask if you can't post a Ralph Nader poster. Download posters from the website. If your state is still working on ballot access, try collecting signatures while you are there.
3. Order textbooks through a local bookseller. Most bookstores, even small ones, can order books. Don't buy overpriced books through your University Bookstore or through "Big Box" Vendors like Barnes & Noble.

If you have more ideas for Small Businesses Week, feel free to post them to this blog by commenting on this article, or email them to
