We hear this all around us. Go Local and buy local. What does this mean? Why is it important?
Imported foods, clothes, furniture, electronics have always been sort after for a while now. Imported items always enjoy a higher price. It was always considered that anything foreign was better quality and we wanted to join the bandwagon. Today, with the increase in awareness about climate change and more accessibility to knowledge about carbon footprint, being local is catching up.
Especially when it comes to food, it is better to stay local because it is fresher.
Your fruits and vegetables would have been picked within 24 hours and thereby remains fresher and tastier.
The carbon footprint is also immensely less since the produce can only travel so much to stay fresh.
Most importantly, when you buy from your local grocer, every rupee you spend remains within your community and thereby helps in building your nation.
Buy Local, eat local and go local….
