Think Local, Act Local!

Post offices, specialist shops, greengrocers, newsagents are all disappearing from your local high street. If you live in the UK you can help halt this decline in communities by joining the campaign for Sustainable Communities at Local Works: www.localworks.org.

Locally run shops and businesses employ local people and help maintain vibrant, lively communities. If you shop locally, you reduce traffic congestion and pollution as well as supporting your local community.

I feel virtuous today because I'm renewing my contact lenses at the local optical center instead of at HugeMallCom, even though it will involve a change in contact's brand. :D

Hi Nia,
I should go to the opticians again soon! Thanks for reminding me! Huge Malls always seems so convenient that they can make it difficult to choose the local option. I hope your new brand of contact lenses are just as good as the old ones!
