Buying local helps the environment.

Transportation by shipping produces emissions of 1 billion metric tons of CO2 and uses 11 billion gallons of fuel per year internationally (eLocal.com). When you make purchases from businesses that are not local, more transportation is required which means more fuel, which means — more air pollution. And then there’s packaging. When products need to be shipped, more packing wastes are produced. When you buy local, you can just walk, bike, or take a short car ride over to a business and pick up your purchases. Excessive packaging to ensure products don’t break while in transit with mail carriers is not necessary.

Buying local strengthens the economy.

Buying local creates jobs and circulates money throughout the local community. As noted The Assessment of Economic Advantages at Shopping at Locally Owned Businesses from Michigan State University, small businesses employ more than 52 percent of the nation’s employees. The assessment also noted that since 2003, small businesses have played a vital role in job creation, adding more than 5.1 million new jobs to our economy.

Better customer service.

Local business owners are typically the same people who share your schools, your churches, your doctors’ offices, and more. They are your neighbors and maybe even your friends and family members. Many small businesses value local customers more because they are part of their community and they understand the value in building relationships. Many sources have even said, when hiring, local businesses choose employees that have a specific area of expertise so they can deliver better customer service.
