to promote the health of the greater Willits area.

ZIPPY ZONE Directory
95490 Getting Sustainable Fast – Vol. I – 2008
Does not include local spiritual or health (except hospital) providers.
Inclusion on this list does not infer recommendation, just sustainability activity.

Localizing our basic needs frees us from dependency on outside sources.
Buying locally made, grown, or owned products and services encourages their development.

Any entity producing and selling products or services locally not listed below, please contact the Willits Action Group at 456-9005 to apply for inclusion in the 2009 directory. For now, the need to acquire non-local supplies or funding does not exclude a provider from this directory. Please call the same number for corrections or changes.

While supplies last the complete “Mendocino County Food Guide” is available at the Willits Chamber of Commerce. Sustainability Mantra: Don’t trash necessary items instead FIX, RECYCLE, DONATE, STORE, & EXCHANGE THEM!
