Spending Locally Creates Jobs

According to this video, Bellingham, WA is one of the most sustainable communities in the US. This is because local business owners make up the majority of the local economy.

The non- profit organization Sustainable Connections is dedicated to raising awareness about the personal, community and economic benefits of choosing local first. They started by connecting 700 local businesses, supporting them in their efforts to be "stewards of the region". They engaged the community in a Think Local / Buy Local program.

Meet the enthusiastic residents who support local businesses every chance they get!

A gentle reminder that choosing local retailers whenever possible creates jobs and community. More dollars will continue to reverberate within the community if you spend them on local businesses.
