Is Buying Local Really That Important?

I have been thinking a lot about coincidences and the exisitence of law of attraction lately and it still amazes me when it occurs! I guess it is always occurring, just sometimes it is more obvious than others.

Yesterday, Michelle and I attended the quarterly meeting of R.E.A.P. (Respect for the Earth and All People), a local business association that we are very proud to be a member of. At the meeting we got to network with other fantastic, green, local businesses like:

At the meeting, we discussed the importance of buying locally and supporting local business. I knew this was important but some of the numbers and studies that have been done regarding boosting local economy were eye-opening.

Then this morning, I found this article in my inbox. It is from the beachbody site (a company that sells various workout programs). While I don’t entirely support or endorse their views on nutrition, this article is very well put together and so true.

I implore you, if you don’t already:

  • BUY LOCAL! Try out one of the above local businesses.
  • Check out the new Kingsland Farmer’s Market. Calgary’s newest Farmers Market. Connecting Families, Farmers, and the food they share. You will be amazed at all you can find locally.
  • Stay tuned! I am looking forward to Stephanie Jackman’s (founder of R.E.A.P.) upcoming “buy local impact” campaign and will be blogging about it so stay tuned!


We're not around right now. But you can send us an email and we'll get back to you, asap.
