The more money that stays within our region, means more job creation, more entrepeneurship, more local expertise, more investment, improved sustainability due to less carbon footprint etc etc... The objective is for each consumer to be more aware of how they invest their money and where it ends up... Keep it here and make a difference to our local economy and ultimately make East London a better place for all of us!


You may join this project if your organisation is owned and operated from East London (& the Border Kei Region): offering products and services that directly benefit the LOCAL economy of our YOKELS!
