One thing I think people should keep in mind when going about sourcing their products or materials is to think about trying to keep them as local as possible.
There are many benefits to this. For one thing, it looks good to customers, so it's a point of difference for your business.
For another, you will cut down on transport costs, and you'll be able to more easily ensure your supply chain won't be affected by third parties like mailing companies.
And, in the long run, it's just the best thing to do. Cutting down carbon and employing local people will help to make the world a better place for everyone around you.
In reality, that's something we all want, I think.
