Think Globally, Act Locally

Buying local makes an impact on:

1. You:
Money spent at local businesses generates 3.5x more wealth for the local economy compared to money spent at chain-owned businesses. 1

2. Community Groups:
On average, non-profit organizations receive 250% more support from smaller businesses than they do from larger businesses.

3. Local jobs:
Small local businesses are the largest employer nationally, providing the most jobs to residents.

4. The Environment:
When less transportation is needed for deliveries, there’s generally less habitat loss and pollution. International shipping and transport results in 1 billion gallons of fuel used per year internationally1 and 1 billion metric tons of CO2 emitted1.
