The idea behind Buy Michigan Now is to challenge supporters of the state to factor Michigan into their buying decisions — when possible, buy locally. Buy Michigan Now makes it easy to do this by providing a directory where you can look up Michigan businesses that meet one of the following criteria:
- They operate entirely in Michigan
- They are headquartered in Michigan with additional operations outside the state
- They are a Michigan-owned franchise or affiliate with some fees or revenue paid out of state
One great reason to buy locally is to reduce your carbon footprint, for more local green resources check out the CPL's Canton Green Resources.
