The importance of shopping local

It’s no secret that here at Cotswold Collective we LOVE to shop local. In fact, it’s really the reason we exist.

So here’s a couple of our favourite reasons why we believe everyone should shop local.

Shopping local is important for a few reasons. Firstly, when you shop at local businesses, you’re supporting your community’s economy. This means that your money stays within your community, creating more jobs and helping to keep your local economy strong.

Secondly, shopping local helps to reduce the environmental impact of consumerism. When you buy products that are sourced locally, they don’t need to be shipped from far away, which means less carbon emissions and a smaller environmental footprint.

Lastly, shopping local is just a great way to connect with your community. When you shop at local businesses, you get to meet the people who run them and the other customers who frequent them. You get to experience the unique personality and character of your community, and you get to support the businesses that make it special.

So next time you’re out and about, consider stopping by a local shop or two. You never know what unique and wonderful products you might find, and you’ll be doing your part to help your community thrive.
