Totally Locally launched by Calderdale based their launch on the following statement. ‘If every adult in Calderdale spent just £5 per week in their local independent shops, instead of online or in supermarkets, it would be worth an extra £40 million per year going into the local economy. Which means more jobs, better facilities and a nicer place for us all to live.’
The love your local market jute bags which are to launch and carry the message of love your local market were distributed free, only to customers who have spent £5 in their local market. To date over 2,000 bags have been distribute which obviously means that at least £10,000 has gone back into the local economy and carried the message of love your local market for the life of the bag.
