  • Strengthening NH Communities & Saving the World: Buying Local | Conservation New Hampshire
    most notably from a far lower transportation requirements As many goods are not able to be manufactured or produced locally this benefit pertains mostly to food In his worthwhile and bestselling book Deep Economy New England environmentalist Bill McKibben points out that the average bite of food travels over 1 500 miles before reaching us This means that most transported food takes much more energy to grow and move than the energy that food contains calorie wise Of course when packaging is taken into account it gets even worse McKibben cites a study that found that if we ate local we would be reducing our energy consumption by an amount equal to that we would save by reducing our household energy use by 20 It is also worth noting that local usually foods have much less packaging thus further conserving energy and materials There are environmental incentives to support local businesses that sell products other than food as well For one local businesses are able to make more local purchases further reducing energy consumption and emissions and continuing to keep the money in the community Local businesses are also more likely to be closer to their customers than the alternatives meaning it reduces the amount of time and fuel spent shopping Shopping locally also invariably strengthens the tax base of communities which leads to an increased revenue to potentially further strengthen the community and increase its environmental practices We all know the type of community that we enjoy the kind that attracts visitors and potential residents There are many such communities of various sizes scattered throughout New Hampshire I would almost guarantee that the type of community you enjoy is not made up of department stores giant plastic signs strip malls and parking lots I m willing to bet your

  • NH Business Leaders Take to the Air To Support RGGI | Conservation New Hampshire
    series of ads features Will Manzer President of Peterborough based Eastern Mountain Sports Three other ads are planned each focusing on a specific New Hampshire based company The radio campaign follows the release in April of over 140 New Hampshire based businesses who signed onto a full page newspaper ad that ran in daily newspapers across the state supporting the Initiative These ads continue to show the strong support in the New Hampshire business community for RGGI said Jim O Brien Executive Director of Conservation NH If the Legislature is interested in creating jobs and strengthening the economy they should take the advice of the hundreds of NH based businesses who are urging them to support this cost effective program RGGI is a ten state agreement to reduce carbon emissions from fossil fueled power plants The NH House of Representatives voted last month to repeal New Hampshire s participation in the regional compact The Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee is currently discussing an amendment offered by Senator Jeb Bradley R Wolfeboro that would reform the current RGGI law rather than repeal the program The Committee is scheduled to vote on Bradley s amendment May 5th followed by a vote by the full Senate in the next few weeks We support Senator Bradley s efforts to reform RGGI so that New Hampshire remains part of the ten state agreement continued O Brien While we may not agree with all the changes contained in the Bradley amendment we are in agreement with these New Hampshire based businesses that it makes economic sense for NH to remain part of RGGI The program has been successful in creating jobs reducing energy costs while reducing pollution Click here to listen to the ad Eastern Mountain Sports Final Tags RGGI Comment RSS Trackback Leave a
