"I will start to actively promote the benefits of shopping locally and NOT going to supermarkets but only if 20 other people will do the same wherever they are in the world."

it is now 7 years since I went into a supermarket, I do all my shopping locally in corner shops, farm shops, local markets and so on and I love it...
i have saved money, eaten better and not had the stress of supermarket shopping
i have long grumbled quietly that not enough people do this - but now if this pledge is fulfilled I will stand out and shout about the benefits
