Why buying local produce is important

Buying local produce is one of the latest trends in the health world! There are now large sections in Whole Foods that feature local produce, and many restaurants are even beginning to offer from farm-to-table options. At DeliverLean, we are very committed to buying as many local products as possible! Here are our top five reasons why we believe everyone should try to buy local as often as possible.

 

Freshness and Sustainability

Local products don’t have to travel very far to reach your table, and due to the short transient time, you will receive the freshest foods available.  You can also reduce your carbon imprint because of the lower gas usage.

 

Price

Because of the lower logistic costs, local products can be found at lower prices than the ones shipped from across the country. As a result, we are able to keep our own costs down and share these savings with you!

 

Supporting the community

When you shop local, you are supporting businesses that give back to your local economy with their taxes. As a result, those tax dollars go back to the support of your community and your local causes.

 

We help create jobs

When you support local businesses, you create more demand for their goods and therefore create more jobs to fulfill the demand.

 

Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurship is what America was built on and it is how we grow as a country. DeliverLean was founded by two passionate entrepreneurs and we want to support other businesses like ours. We hope you do as well!
