Regionally Sourced/Harvested/Extracted

Most materials, goods and products travel a far distance via ship, train or truck before arriving at their final destination.  The impacts associated with transporting those goods and products can be significant – added traffic congestion, increased greenhouse gas emissions, and worsening of air pollution.  By selecting products that are locally sourced, the impacts of transportation are minimized. Additionally, choosing local or regional materials supports the local economy.
