Westbourne Community Magazine urges support of local shops, cutting carbon emissions
The Westbourne Magazine, a community magazine serving an area of Bournemouth in the UK, wants to see an increase in local trade over the coming years. Editors and contributors to the publication are behind the project, which is garnering huge support from area residents and businesses.
The magazine promotes community shops and services. By urging people to walk to nearby shops rather than driving to out-of-town centres, Westbourne Magazine hopes to foster cuts in carbon emissions while supporting local trade.
Another benefit: Supporting local and independent traders puts money in communities rather than multinational companies. Westbourne Magazine offers a discount to members of the local trade organisation and only promotes businesses in the area.
