The fact that you emphasize localism. Knowing that you had a chocolate bar and think about the work that it took, from the cocoa beans to the milk to the wrapper. It's important. I try to live as local as I can - shopping farmers markets, contributing by shopping at small business etc.
October 10, 2014 3:57 PM By Natalie
