It may not be pretty, but several weeks ago a group of designers unveiled a genuine 100-mile suit with all parts and labor sourced within 100 miles of Philadelphia. The blog following progress of the 100-mile suit includes fascinating details of the sourcing and labor, as well as close-up images of the work in progress and finished.
The 100-mile cloth diaper stash that we suggested last year was only BOUGHT within 100 miles. There are more steps to take after buying local.
- Item bought locally
- Product manufactured locally
- Materials sourced locally
- Resources grown locally
How far can you go? It’s a great experiment.
