Go Vocal for Local to save our Health, Wealth and the EnvironmentThis lock-down has taught a lot to all of us. We have learnt how to manage with lack of facilities and commodities. We have also learnt that we can live with limited resources and save money. As we are living and facing this critical situation, it also gives a feeling that we can cope with these issues and situations. In this time we have also stopped purchasing of unnecessary things due to limited visits to shops and malls, which also saved our money. We should use local products which will be helpful in our farmer's welfare and also our country. Now the time is to implement these things in our lives by going Vocal for Local.
We can start with our kitchen. Direct purchasing of agriculture produce from farmers can be done, which will not only save our money but also save our health and environment. We can get fresh vegetables, pulses, oilseeds, oil etc. directly from nearby local farmers. They will provide us with natural foodstuff with no preservatives and in non-biodegradable packaging, and even at low cost. Because they do not charge the cost of packaging, preservatives, transportation and expenditure on staff from us as we shall purchase ourselves by visiting nearby farmers instead of big shopping malls. So "Go Vocal for Local" and save our health, wealth and the environment.
