Please support these businesses that support FLOW and Great Lakes protection.

Derek Nielsen Global Photograph creates artwork that support conservation efforts around the globe, including support of FLOW and our mission to ensure the waters of the Great Lakes Basin are healthy, public, and protected for all. See the photograph “City By The Lake,” on sale now to benefit FLOW.

Higher Art Gallery is a woman/artist-owned contemporary art gallery located in downtown Traverse City. We focus on a diverse range of mediums and styles, and pride ourselves on setting ourselves apart from much of what is commonly expected from a tourist driven, “small town” gallery. ​​Our space is also the incubator for our nonprofit arm called: “Project CivilARTzation”.

Lake Effect Co. is a lake-loving adventure brand focusing on consciously sourced clothing and accessories. This means finding recycled, organic, small business, or responsibly made to the best of our ability. Not only do we care about the makers of the apparel, but the impact it leaves on the earth, as that is all of our responsibility to step up there – 5% of our sales go to organizations that support the Great Lakes.

Katherine Corden Art. Art to complement the love and light in your home, from Katherine’s sunny studio. Her website features original acrylic paintings that include scenes of the Great Lakes, Sleeping Bear Dunes, and area beaches.

Red Bud Suds set out to do environmental advocacy and ended up making soap. Scratch that… not just soap. Red Bud Suds makes 4-in-1 shower bars to help you simplify, connect and protect this beautiful world we share. Shower bars are outdoor-inspired body and shampoo bars created for eco-conscious adventurers who want simple and uncluttered lives.

Short’s Brewing Company in Bellaire, Michigan, is stepping up to protect North America’s fresh water—85% of which is held within our Great Lakes. FLOW is one of three nonprofits you can support with each purchase of Local’s Light, as part of the “Share the Light” campaign. Just upload your proof-of-purchase to Short’s website. Feel good about what you drink.
