Hello neighbors! It must have crossed your minds "why are there so many Start Shopping Local Products campaigns now?". There are many reasons for the creation of the slogan, one of which is its benefits. Let's discuss it in this blog! The following are the benefits of shopping at local sellers.
Decrease Carbbon Footprint
Are you familiar with the "carbon footprint"? yup, Carbon Footprint is better known as pollution. So, how can shopping locally reduce pollution? By shopping for local products, you reduce the pollution produced by the means of transporting the product. The means of transportation that send products from outside the city and even abroad will produce a lot of pollution every day. Imagine if this kept happening every day of the year.
Buying locally produced and harvested goods will be very cheap compared to buying imported goods from supermarkets. Local sellers do not need expensive land and buildings to rent, so selling prices do not require high increases. Distributors of local products also do not need to include high shipping costs. Can you imagine the price difference?
The Seller Master Their Products
It's impossible for the vegetable sellers around you to provide laundry equipment like in the department store. They will focus on selling vegetables and become experts on their products. These small sellers will be very careful with the products they have been selling for years so that small changes such as color, aroma, or texture will be noticed by them. You can also ask a lot of things about their products.
Easy to Reach
In your opinion, which one is easier to reach? a seller in a market near you or online goods from out of town? Of course, the local market is closer. Not only that, in the market you will be greeted by many sellers with different variations of shops and products. You can also find unique products that you have never met before.
Supporting Your Surrounding Development
By buying from people who live near you, the economic cycle will be localized in your area. "Then what's the benefit for me?" Of course, with the increase in the income of sellers around you, the quality of the places used by sellers will improve, as well as public facilities, which of course will get more funds from the soaring income tax of local residents.
create Job Opportunities
The more buyers in the local market or shop, of course, it will be accompanied by an increase in sellers. One seller will not be able to serve 1000 buyers at once, so an opportunistic potential seller will certainly take this opportunity to help supply the needs of consumers. The higher the availability of jobs, the higher the standard of living of the people around us.
those are the benefits of Shopping at local sellers for ourselves and those around us.
