You have a voice -- buy local. Wow!

Buying locally produced goods and services provides an "Easter Egg Hunt" of benefits -- and this intriguing graphic can help you understand the many "butterfly flutters" your choices contribute to a better local community.

Find green business solutions
Happy Earth Day! Buying local goods can benefit the environment and the community. It's an important issue and there's no better time to raise awareness.

We often don't take the time needed to fully appreciate the complex web of results each of our actions and decisions creates. And that certainly applies to buying locally produced goods and services. This graphic walks you through the value that buying locally brings to you and your community -- and our shared natural resources, economy and livable communities. If you step through it just once -- you can make the decision ONCE that can guide many of your future choices, and that can positively strengthen your health, your family's safety and well being, and your neighbors and loved ones' communities and well being at the same time.

Each action has many ramifications. Remember the popular concept a few years ago about the flutter of a butterfly's wings, and how it can impact its environment? Your decisions have so much more impact!

Enjoy... learn... and share positive opportunities to make our shared life better... :-)
