Why Buying Local is Worth Every Cent

Buying local not only helps your community’s local economy in major ways, it also helps the environment as a whole by lowering harmful carbon dioxide emissions. The United States alone imports $2.2 trillion worth of products yearly from over 150 countries. Furthermore, shipping produces one billion metric tons of CO2 AND uses 11 billion gallons of fuel per year internationally. Buying from local and independent businesses cuts down on the shipping, transport, and packaging costs used by big box and chain retailers.
Do what you can for the environment and for your community’s economy by going local this Earth Day and every day!
