The Green Life: Think Globally, Buy Locally

Think Globally, Buy Locally

Buy LocalTomorrow is Buy Local Day, so whether you're getting started on your holiday shopping, or picking up something practical for yourself, bypass the big chain stores (they're gonna be way crowded anyway) and make your way to the neighborhood mom 'n' pop. Sponsored by some of the Green Life's favorite groups (including The Center for a New American Dream, Co-Op America, Global Exchange, and the Organic Consumers Association), Buy Local Day encourages consumers to "vote with their dollars" and support stores that build community rather than tear it down to build a mammoth parking lot.

What's your favorite local store, and what's the best thing about shopping there?
