The Importance of Procuring and Manufacturing Locally
In today's global economy, it's easy to forget the importance of supporting local businesses and employment. However, at homeD, we believe that procurement and manufacturing locally are crucial to the sustainability of the environment and the economy. Not only do we provide training and employment opportunities for at-risk and homeless communities, but we also focus on making sure that they feel more pride in the homes they live in. By keeping our business local, we hope to make a positive impact on our community as a whole.
The first reason why procurement and manufacturing locally are important to us is that it helps to sustain the environment. Transporting goods from all over the world creates a large carbon footprint, which is detrimental to the environment. When you procure and manufacture locally, you eliminate the need for long-distance transportation, which reduces your carbon footprint. In addition, local manufacturing requires less energy than manufacturing overseas, further reducing your impact on the environment.
Secondly, supporting local businesses and employment helps to sustain the economy. When you purchase goods from overseas, the money leaves the country and does not circulate within the local economy. Likewise, when you outsource manufacturing jobs, you are taking away opportunities for people who live in your community to earn a living. By keeping your business local, you are reinvesting in your community and helping to create jobs.
Lastly, by providing training and employment opportunities for at-risk and homeless communities, we are helping to break the cycle of poverty. For many people who are struggling to make ends meet, getting a job can be a difficult task. However, by offering training and employment opportunities, we are giving them the tools they need to succeed. In addition, by helping them feel more pride in their homes, we are giving them a sense of ownership and responsibility. We believe that everyone deserves an opportunity to thrive, regardless of their circumstances.
At homeD, we believe that supporting local businesses and employment is important for the sustainability of our environment and economy. We are committed to providing training and employment opportunities for all members of our community so that everyone has an opportunity to thrive. Together, we can make a difference in our community.
