We didn’t want to mention it, but … the holidays are hard on the environment.
The typical Christmas dinner travels an average of 1,500 miles from farm to table. And all those made-in-China gifts rack up a big carbon footprint en route to our holiday celebrations. Purchasing goods sourced 150 miles or less from home not only saves wear and tear on the planet, but also is good for the local economy. We’re doing our best to buy local this year.
If you are feeling in the buy local holiday spirit, too, print and post these Buy Local posters or share these Facebook badges with your favorite homegrown businesses. If you do, we’ll be sure to let Santa know you’ve been extra good this year.
