A group of SCAD Historic Preservation students urged shoppers to spend their money locally over the Labor Day Weekend with a Web site and merchant outreach program that garnered plenty of attention from local media. A Savannah Morning News story described the sustainability angle at work in Savannah’s Shop Local Challenge:
“The benefits of shopping in locally owned stores are highlighted in the student campaign and include local character and well-being, environmental sustainability by providing walkable town centers that reduce automobile use and suburban sprawl.”
