Chooseday 9th April - Choose to Shop Locally!

Good Morning,

Happy Chooseday! Today, let's talk about the incredible impact of choosing to shop locally!

🛍️ Did you know that supporting local businesses not only benefits our communities but also contributes to a healthier planet? It's true!

When you shop locally, you're not just purchasing goods – you're investing in the future of your community and reducing your carbon footprint. 

🌱 For every $100 spent at a locally owned business, an impressive $68 circulates and remains within our local economy.

In contrast, when the same amount is spent at a national chain, only $43 stays in our community. 1

That's nearly 70% of your dollars supporting local jobs, schools, and services! 💼 And let's not forget about the unique and diverse offerings of local businesses – from artisanal crafts to specialty goods, shopping locally is an experience like no other. 

By purchasing locally grown produce, you're not only supporting local farmers but also enjoying fresh, seasonal ingredients bursting with flavor and nutrients. Plus, shopping at farmers markets reduces the environmental impact of food transportation and supports sustainable farming practices. 🌿

So... why not visit your local farmers market this weekend? Nourish yourself with good, healthy food, from the earth to your plate! 🍓

And, with National Volunteer Week approaching, now is the perfect time to take your commitment to community even further. 🤝 Why not explore volunteering opportunities in your area?

Whether it's lending a hand at a local farm or participating in corporate volunteering at a children's farm, there's something for everyone to get involved in. 🌟

Here are a couple of opportunities on GoodCompany to consider:

By choosing to shop locally and volunteer in our communities, we can create positive change and make our neighborhoods stronger, more vibrant places to live.

Let's make a difference together! 💪

Happy Chooseday,

the GoodCompany team.
