Going local is the beginning of something that I hope becomes more than a trend. There's more to it than just buying local though. People need to act together to affect government policy, support local banking and energy generation, and create more self-sufficient communities. Supporting local community business is something that should happen everywhere, so there can be exchanges between communities for various products. So much more than can be explained in a brief post. Learn more at SmallMart.org [and read the book above, its divided into sections that are great for reference, with summaries of what individuals can do at the end of every chapter] and see someone putting it into thought out action at Urban Rustic.
