WALK THE TALK – Support Local

It’s easy to tell people what they should do.  It’s easy to say what you are going to do.  But actually doing something is a whole other level, and the level that we need to be at to really make sustainable changes with anything.

Simply a rant against people who talk but don’t walk?  Perhaps.  Or perhaps a reminder that we all need a reminder to do things.

Supporting local means trying to source products and services from someone imediately in your community – meaning that person is alive and operating in that community.  A local farmer or gardener grows produce there, a local shop-keeper has items that he or she resells there, a local brewer makes their beer there, a publication houses writers and advertisers there.

It is hard to purchase everything local – so don’t try doing that.  To start, try one or two things, and then build as you go – that is generally more sustainable for those of us who work for a living.

It all starts somewhere, but it must start – we make the difference, and we must walk the talk.
