What is it?

This website features information on how buying locally can benefit not only you, as a consumer, or the local businesses themselves, but the entire community you live in. Navigating through the Buying Local link will illustrate to you some key points in why your money should be spent locally when possible.

How to Use it?

Navigation through the site is a fairly simple process. All information on buying local is presented in a sliding form in the 'buying local' section. Going page by page, (back and forward) each illustration can be clicked to reveal some of the benefits of buying local.

Why Care?

Buying locally will play an even larger role in the future. Looking forward, we can see current trends creating problems not only with the economy on a micro scale but eventually on a macro scale as well. Creating more sustainable communities will be vital in maintaining localities with personality, variety, and clean living.
