Rob Kochanski, founder & host of Local First Podcast, where I share inspiring stories of Local Entrepreneurs, Business Owners, and Community Leaders and drop there stories every Wednesday!
Supporting local does not mean walling off the outside world. It means nurturing locally owned businesses which use local resources sustainably, employ local workers at decent wages and serve primarily local consumers. It means becoming more self-sufficient and less dependent on imports. Control moves from the boardrooms of distant corporations and back into the community where it belongs.
Now you have an opportunity to meet the local business owner before using their product or services.
