Why Supporting Small, Handmade Businesses is Good for You, the Community, and the Planet

Hey there, friends! I'm Christi, the founder and CEO of Hotsy Totsy Haus, a small, handmade business that creates handcrafted bath and body products. I wanted to take a moment to talk to you about the importance of supporting small, handmade businesses like mine.

First off, let me just say that small, handmade businesses like Hotsy Totsy Haus are the backbone of the economy, and it's so important to support us as much as possible. We put so much care and attention into creating unique, handcrafted products that are often of a higher quality than mass-produced items. And trust me, I know you'll feel the difference!

One of the main benefits of buying from small, handmade businesses like ours is the quality of the products. We use only the finest ingredients and take the time to ensure that each item is made to perfection. In contrast, mass-produced items are often made with cheaper ingredients and may not be made as carefully. So, you're getting a product that's not only good for you, but it's also good for the environment.

Another benefit of purchasing from small, handmade businesses is that you're supporting a real person. Hotsy Totsy Haus is a small team, and your purchase helps to support our livelihood. Additionally, many small, handmade businesses are run by people who are passionate about what they do, and this passion is reflected in the quality of their products.

Buying from small, handmade businesses also helps to support the local economy. We often source our materials from local suppliers, and many are based in the same community as our customers. This helps to keep money circulating within the local economy and supports the growth of small businesses.

When it comes to handcrafted bath and body products such as bath bombs, soaps, body scrubs, body butters, candles, and similar items, small businesses often use more natural and gentle ingredients, which is better for the environment and for your skin. We also have more control over the ingredients we use, and can avoid using harsh chemicals, and undesirable filler ingredients. 

Supporting small, handmade businesses that create handcrafted bath and body products is important for a number of reasons. These businesses provide high-quality, unique products that are made with care and attention to detail. Supporting them helps to support the livelihoods of real people, the local economy, and the environment. So, next time you're in the market for some bath and body products, consider supporting a small, handmade business like Hotsy Totsy Haus instead of a large, mass-produced company.

Thanks for supporting small businesses like mine, we couldn't do it without you!
