Reasons To Buy Michigan Products

5 Good Reasons to Buy Locally

1.Maintains jobs so our talented citizens can stay in the land that they love.
2.Diversifies Michigan’s economic portfolio so we still thrive when one of our industries comes on hard times.
3.Attracts new employers thereby creating new jobs.
4.Increases the tax base.
5.Reduces our carbon footprint because less fuel is used to move the merchandise, when bought locally.

Also did you know... if every household started spending just $10 per week of their current grocery budget on locally grown foods, we'd keep more than $37 million each week circulating within Michigan's economy.

One Guy Didn't

Three guys were tried for crimes against humanity.
Two guys committed crimes.
One guy didn't.

Three guys were given government trials.
Two guys had fair trials.
One guy didn't.

Three guys were whipped and beaten.
Two guys had it coming.
One guy didn't.

Three guys were given crosses to carry.
Two guys earned their crosses.
One guy didn't.

Three guys were mocked and spit at along the way.
Two guys cursed and spit back.
One guy didn't.

Three guys were nailed to crosses.
Two guys deserved it.
One guy didn't.

Three guys agonized over their abandonment.
Two guys had reason to be abandoned.
One guy didn't.

Three guys talked while hanging on their crosses.
Two guys argued.
One guy didn't.

Three guys knew death was coming.
Two guys resisted.
One guy didn't.

Three guys died on three crosses.

Three days later.
Two guys remained in their graves.
One guy didn't.
