Why it’s important to “Go Local” and how to do it:

Charleston has an alliance of local independent businesses. It is Lowcountry Local First, www.lowcountrylocalfirst.org, we support them whenever we can by doing business with the membership and our community. Check out their website for fascinating facts about spending dollars in our town.

Ask stores, food markets and restaurants about the origins of their products. Let the owners know you care about conscientious sourcing.

Support local artists and craftspeople. Artist co-ops and many galleries represent regional artists.

When remodeling, hire local iron and metalworkers; textile; cabinet, furniture and lamp makers. Try not to order from catalogs online, avoid shipping and spend your dollars locally.
