Cooperatives (also called co-ops) are a form of business ownership that is practiced all over the world. The most common types of cooperatives are worker-owned and consumer-owned. Most cooperatives adhere to seven principles:
Agricultural: farms, feed suppliers, and seed banks.
Computer and Internet: ISPs, web hosting, and computer design collectives
Energy: utility companies and power providers
Food Cooperatives: health-food stores and bulk food sharing programs
Housing: housing cooperatives and intentional communities.
Visual Arts: groups of artists, both living and working together.
