It is the tradition to make changes at New Year, but often these resolutions are superficial, aimed at testing your resolve or denying yourself certain foods you enjoy. Some stick, but others don’t and you slip into old habits, forgetting about the changes you tried to make. When planning your resolutions for 2021, why not positively impact others’ lives, as well as your own? We know 2020 has been a tough year for everyone, so let’s make positive changes that impact us all. Let’s support local UK businesses and Buy British.

Buy Local in 2021

Buying local can mean anything from choosing potatoes grown on a local farm to purchasing clothing handmade in a nearby town or choosing a bicycle made in the UK rather than abroad. Buying British can mean various things to different people, why not figure out how you want to buy local?

There are significant social, economic and environmental benefits to buying locally. These include a reduced carbon footprint, more local jobs and money flowing in the local economy, a stronger local community and will lead to an increasingly wide range of local businesses to choose from.

What’s Made in the UK?

This is where YouK comes in. YouK’s mission is to provide you with all the tools you need to make a huge difference to the environment and the sustainability of UK jobs and public services.
