If you can, shopping locally not only reduces your personal carbon footprint, but it also keeps more money in your local area as it helps support local businesses and families – and that’s definitely in keeping with the festive spirit. If you plan a little and don’t leave all your shopping until the last minute (no judgement if you do!), then you won’t have to rely on the big companies and their enticing Same Day/Next Day Delivery options. And, if you really have left it all until the last minute, then shopping locally will help you even more!
As well as shopping closer to home, if you can avoid using a car and instead opt for carrying any gifts home on your bike or e-bike then that’ll make a world of difference, too. Or, if you’re lucky enough to have a cargo e-bike, then it really is its time to shine! Our PAKYAK E+ is made for holiday shopping!
