Bring back basic human decency.

We live in a society where casual cruelty is more common than empathy or com­passion. We torture each other over lattes and disposable dinner plates. We give per­suasive assholes power because they promise us convenient ways to waste our hard earned cash. Convenience isn't a bad thing. A good latte is amazing and takeout can lead to beautiful memories💕. What is wrong is how we allow mega-corporations to treat us and our neighbors to make these nice things happen.

HyperLocal Cooperative is social technology company dedicated to building a better world🌱 and sharing the fruits of that labor with everyone involved. To start with we want to build some things:

Of course, an audit and some software isn't going to fix the problem by itself, that's where you come in: [join the sunshine gardens cooperative] and help us stand up to Walmart, Amazon, Uber, GrubDash, and every other corporation that thinks its acceptable to hurt people to make a buck. Alternatively, you're invited to participate in our vetting process.

We can't make the world a better place without holding ourselves and our neighbors to high standards. It will take some time to build every­thing we need and longer to reach our ethical and ecological goals. Your continued support is how any of this can be possible. Additionally, we challenge you to apply these ethical standards to your every day economic behavior.
