TreeHugger loves shopping local. We’ve previously brought news of the 100 Mile Diet, and we’ve even launched our own 100-mile Thanksgiving Challenge. Now we’ve come across this popular ad on YouTube, produced by Friends of the Earth UK, parodying the commercials of supermarket giant Tesco.
Of course, we’d be remiss not to point out that Tesco has actually made some major moves towards sustainability in the last few years, as we’ve reported here, here and here, but we still can’t help agreeing with Friends of the Earth – life would be a lot less interesting without local shops around. ::Friends of the Earth UK:: via site visit::
