It's kind of what we're about after all :) Shop Local is a huge campaign that is focused on keeping jobs and money in our own communities. Why are we sending jobs overseas when we have so many unemployed neighbors? Why are we giving so much space to Wal-mart? This is an article from www.staylocal.org (granted it's about New Orleans) that pretty well sums up exactly why we should keep it local. Just say "Cincinnati" in place of New Orleans to get the full effect.
Check it out and tell me what you think! I'll be finding more "Keep it Local" stuff to share this week, let me know if you find anything!
