Buy locally

Buy locally

In addition to the physical attributes of green products, buying locally considers the origin of products as well. Buying regional products reduces transportation costs and energy and keeps dollars in the local economy. A major tenet of sustainability is making use of resources from the immediate region. This results in a greater understanding of the region, its characteristics and resources, and the impact of using or producing that resource on that region.
