Some other reasons to think "shop local first" that we came up were:

  • Increase Domestic Production.  Wouldn't we all like to see a little less Made In China, Indonesia, Korea, etc and a little more Made in USA?  
  • Quality through Accountability.  You know Colorado made products are well made because it was your neighbor who made them, and the care, thoughtfulness and time that was invested in each product shows.
