When you hear the words Buy Local, have you ever thought about how you can impact your local community by buying local?
When you buy local, you're keeping the money in your own back yard so to say. The local merchant you frequent will take that same money and spend it locally by putting it back into their business or even frequenting your business. The money recirculates in your community as opposed to going to a corporation in another location. True, there are many franchise owners affiliated with national and international companies that operate locally and are good business models, but I'm talking about the local farmers, coffee shoppes, etc.. It's nice to know that many locally owned restaurants feature items on their menus that use produce grown on a farm a few miles down the road. You know where your food comes from and may even know the farmer that grew it. This would be a good example of keeping money in the local economy-local farmer grows the food, local restaurant serves it, you eat dinner at that restaurant, the restaurant turns that money around to buy more local produce, meat and dairy.
