Go Local! { The North Carolina 10% Campaign }

nc 10 percent

The NC 10% Campaign is an initiative started at North Carolina State University to encourage businesses and residents to buy more locally produced foods.

People can take the pledge on their website to buy roughly 10% of their food locally, and in doing so they join the movement to stimulate their city’s economy and help the hardworking food producers who live a stone’s throw away from them.

Not to mention, local foods are fresher, healthier and haven’t traveled hundreds of miles to get to you. It’s not that much more expensive to buy, and the products are more diverse and in season. What’s not to love?

As a part of our Environmental Communications course, we made a video promoting the NC 10% Campaign’s efforts.┬áIt was recently featured on Planet Forward’s website – enjoy!
