Shop Local: Made in KC


| 1/9/2017 3:44:00 PM


When you choose to support small, local businesses, craftsmen and makers of all kinds, you reap the rewards. Not only does shopping locally keep your income in your immediate community, it also contributes to sustainability, job creation and fair wages, as well as reduces the effects of inflation. Plus, local entrepreneurs tend to provide diverse products that are aligned with their passions while also focusing on the needs of their clients and communities.

Ogden Publications and Mother Earth Living are nestled in the heartland—Topeka, KS to be exact—and as purveyors of local goods and services, we thought we’d showcase some places in Kansas City, MO, to help you expand your list of the best local businesses.

Indigo Wild

Indigo Wild’s factory is located in the Crossroads, and they are the minds behind Zum Soap. Although soaps may be their best-known product, Indigo Wild now makes a wide range of goodies for your body and home—from soap and body oils to laundry detergent and candles. All Zum products are cruelty-free and vegetarian; most are vegan and gluten-free, as well.

They also support local non-profits and charities. For every Y.U.M. Bar sold, Indigo Wild donates 1 dollar to the Kansas City Sheltie Rescue. They’re also active with local cancer-supporting charities through their Betsy product line, which gives back to breast cancer patients and survivors.



Where to find Zum?
Check your nearest natural grocer, local co-op or other local business that stocks locally-made items. Larger chains, such as Kroger, Hy-Vee and Price Chopper also carry Zum products. If you’re not sure where to start, visit Indigo Wild’s store locator...you might be surprised how easy it is to find.
