Do the Shift! Have you taken the 10% pledge?

Posted on May 15, 2013

Kentville Town Council recently learned about the 10% shift, and we want to spread the word about how shifting even just a portion of your spending to local businesses and services can help our Town thrive and grow!We spend money every day.  On services, food, household items, necessities and comforts.  We are all consumers, and consumer spending is what keeps the world going around.  So when you think about it, that’s a lot of power you hold in your hands. The Ten Percent Shift is really just about using some of that power to make your community stronger and an even better place to live. So, how can we do it?  The Shift doesn’t ask you to spend more – it just says if you change how you spend,you can make a real difference in your community! Visit the shift webpage for loads more information, and to take the 10% pledge!
