Money is power; Money is our voice. Where does your money go when you shop locally vs non-locally?
“Going local does not mean walling off the outside world. It Means nurturing locally owned businesses which use local resources sustainably, employ local workers at decent wages and serve primarily local consumers. It means becoming more self-sufficient and less dependant on imports. Control moves from the boardrooms of distant corporations and back into the community where it belongs.”
– Michael H. Shuman, author of the book Going Local
