Friday 5: Why you should buy local

I’m a big believer in cycles and connections. Not the 6 degrees of separation kind, but overall, in the grand scheme.

I have my own top 5 reasons for buying local and supporting small business, but I also think you should read Sustainable Connections because I feel what they have to say is equally important.

  1. Money stays in the community
  2. I’m not feeding the cycle of low wages, big corporations, over-paid CEOs
  3. I know the people I’m buying from or I can get to know them and their business
  4. Products are often produced/grown in countries without human rights abuses, many often made in America
  5. Creates more jobs, which starts the cycle over at #1 where the money stays in the community.

Today my blog stop is Life & Lies of an Inanimate Flying Object


About K. Reed

Romance author with a twist. Too many post-apocalyptic stories, movies, and what-ifs crowded her head, and K Reed decided to do something about it. So she plotted one out, decided an historical post-apocalyptic romance was the way to go, and wrote that one instead. A lover of all things historical, of strong heroes with equally strong heroines, and of sexy pirates, she’s going to explore the dystopian world of plague-ridden 1804 and the gritty criminal element of Victorian England. Luckily she has an understanding family, supportive friends, and a day job that offers her the flexibility she needs to plot, plan, and write. Sure, one day she’d like to travel the country in search of fantastic storylines and great locale pictures, but for now she’ll stick to the east coast and the internet. @kreedauthor
