In recognition of the integral role of local, sustainable businesses, Simply Living established a Business Membership class in January 2012. The business membership is intended to be an ongoing commitment to partner and promote to our members and friends the goods and services provided by local, independent businesses that contribute to the sustainability of neighborhoods and communities in central Ohio.
