Scotland Loves Local
By walking, wheeling, cycling or using public transport to access local shops and services you can also improve your own health and wellbeing, reduce CO2 emissions and reduce congestion whilst supporting your local community. This all helps to make the area safer and more enjoyable to be in, encouraging others to visit more often and stay longer.
This year all individual prizes for the Scottish Workplace Journey Challenge will be provided through the amazing Scotland Loves Local Gift Card. The new gift card makes it easier than ever to shop locally.
Who are Scotland Loves Local?
But our high streets are not just a series of buildings where things are bought and sold. The people who run these businesses are our brothers and sisters, mums and dads, friends and neighbours. Whether it’s an emergency pint of milk, catching up with friends in the local pub or cafe, our high streets have always been there.
Our small businesses, whether a pub, cafe, tailor, butcher or grocery shop, are the lifeblood of our Scottish economy. They take risks everyday to create jobs and prosperity to maintain our way of life. Now is the time to support them to get back on their feet. Now is the time to be there for them.
Now is the time to think local first.
