Megan Tellez | 24 | Real Estate Paralegal | Social Issue: Health and Wellness
Aside from being a Real Estate Paralegal, Megan spends a ton of time focusing on her passions of photography, health and wellness, and assisting our team at Change Is Ours with some of our content! Megan is a huge advocate for supporting local businesses and farmer's markets, and here's why:
1. Buying produce from local farmer's will tremendously improve your family's health. "When you buy from local farmers, you have access to fruits and vegetables that you know are chemical free, as well as grass-fed meats, fresh eggs, and dairy from cows that feast on local green grass each day."
2. Supporting your local businesses improves your local economy. "When a consumer buys local, significantly more of that money stays in the community."
3. Better, more personalized customer service. "When you personally know the people behind the business where you’re buying local products and services, you enjoy a connection you would not otherwise have." It's all about knowing the people behind the product to know where your food is coming from.
