According to TIME, from Buying Local: How It Boosts the Economy :
At the most basic level, when you buy local more money stays in the community. The New Economics Foundation, an independent economic think tank based in London, compared what happens when people buy produce at a supermarket vs. a local farmer’s market or community supported agriculture (CSA) program and found that twice the money stayed in the community when folks bought locally. “That means those purchases are twice as efficient in terms of keeping the local economy alive,” says author and NEF researcher David Boyle.

Since 2012, the folks at Verdant Kitchen have grown and now work with other local businesses such as, Leoci’s Cha Bella and Brighter Day, to sell the remedy plant.
