Keeping the green in Vermont

If you’re in Vermont and you want to help divert money away from the same old corporate and government robber barons, consider keeping your money here in Vermont.

A new effort, supported in part by Chelsea Green, is called “Keep it in Vermont” and is urging Vermonters to consider re-investing their $600-1200 federal rebate checks back into the Vermont economy during the next three months.

“Most Vermonters we know have bills to pay and are working hard to make ends meet, and this is an astonishing opportunity for Vermont neighbors to jump-start our own local economies in time for spring,” explains small business owner Robin McDermott, a Localvore Vermont leader and co-founder of the “Keep It In Vermont” campaign. “Why run out and buy a new plasma TV, when we have remarkable Vermont farms, businesses, and nonprofits offering high-quality goods and services?”

Adds one other leader in the effort:

“If every one of our 250,000 tax-paying households in Vermont re-invested their federal rebate checks back into our Vermont economies, we’d inject $150 million back into the pockets of our local neighbors during a national economic recession,” states Vermont Commons editor and Champlain College professor Dr. Rob Williams.
