AUSTRALIAN Made has appealed to shoppers to buy local in the wake of natural disasters.
The campaign is appealing to shoppers to look for locally made and grown products and produce in the wake of the recent natural disasters across the eastern states.
Australian Made Campaign chief executive Ian Harrison said the next best thing to providing physical or monetary support was for shoppers to make their upcoming purchases from local growers and manufacturers.
"That puts much-needed reinvestment and money back into the local economy," he said.
"The past few weeks have seen a spate of natural disasters wreak havoc across Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania.
"Now is the time to reinvest in our local communities, by purchasing from local businesses wherever possible - at the supermarket, when shopping for home wares or when replenishing office supplies - when making purchases of any."
