As a brand we believe that making conscious decisions regarding our production process is a crucial part of our responsibility in the economy and society. Using a local supply chain allows LOUDMOUTH to be more economically, environmentally, socially and operationally sustainable.
Many companies struggle to reduce the high concentrations of carbon emissions created in supply chains and production processes. Players in the supply chains such as planes, trains, ships and trucks as well as mass machinery, metals and minerals all have impacts on the environment and contribute to the issue of climate change. When companies source from large industrial business’s and produce or transport globally it increases the amount of eco emissions going into the environment. Shopping and sourcing locally means lessening the amount of eco emissions that are created in the transportation and production process, it also means that owners deal with smaller organizations; often resulting in higher focus on customer service and social responsibility. This is an advantage that comes with sourcing and shopping from local business’s because when organizations are engaged in customer service and social responsibility it creates the opportunity to collaborate on initiatives like increasing transparency on carbon emissions along the supply chain; which contributes positively to both the business and the environment. Sourcing and shopping locally also helps the environment by reducing miles, reducing production costs, and reducing production waste as well as unplanned activities.
As LOUDMOUTH continues to source locally, we encourage others to source and shop locally as well. Shopping and sourcing from local business’s provides benefits to the economy and the environment, it’s small action with the potential to make a big impact!
