This holiday season, when you are out shopping for gifts for your loved ones, consider the option of buying them locally.
Spending money locally not only helps your local economy but also helps in creating local job opportunities. Also it helps protect the environment in which you are living in case of buying from locally grown food markets.
It was noted that every million dollar sale made at a local store created new job opportunities for the locals as well as saw a raise in the wages for the local workers.
In way of protecting the environment, buying food locally means that lesser food items will be brought in from other states thereby reducing fuel emission by transport vehicles. Buying food locally will not only reduce the pollution, it will also lessen the amount of greenhouse gases as well as smog-producing nitrogen-oxide.
