Carrie Treadwell, from Be Resourceful partner Chinook Book, shares highlights from the latest edition of the local coupon resource.
“Chinook Book highlights local, sustainable businesses with a belief that businesses that give back also thrive in the community. The Chinook Book team spends time thinking about businesses and their industries and the approach and criteria with which they appear in the book.
Significant updates and improvements are part of our annual print and mobile editions to help celebrate our proud 15-year history in Portland. You'll find more coupons than ever before, exciting new merchants and enhanced app navigation.
The newly updated map (page 390 in the print edition) highlights resources that are part of the Be Resourceful program:
- Places to borrow, share and swap like the tool libraries and kitchen shares and the swap and play spaces.
- Places to go for used art supplies, building materials and clothing.
- And much more!
You’ll also find a plethora of information and resources for local food, including Portland’s farmers markets, as well as many local businesses that are in line with resourceful living. Look for coupons and tips for bike shops, consignment and thrift stores, hardware stores, and even car sharing opportunities.”
Tap into savings by using both the print book and mobile app, available at local retailers and through school and nonprofit fundraisers.
