Buying local is not a new concept for Eugene and Springfield residents. But—it’s not always so easy. On a recent ABC news story, they experimented by eliminating all non-U.S. produced items from a typical house. Hardly anything was left.
However, they were able to replace the items with domestically produced products. What’s the lesson? It is said that if each of us spent a mere $3.33 per year on American-made products 10,000 jobs would be created.
Of course, when you need services such as a realtor, choosing local is an easier option.
