69% of Bellingham residents are now familiar with the “Think Local First” program.
58% of Bellingham residents are deliberately choosing “local” goods and services.
47% of Bellingham residents have changed their buying behavior.
The study’s lead researcher, Pamela Jull, reported: These results are phenomenal. Normally, if 1 in 5 households claim familiarity with your program, and change their behavior because of it, you would consider it a success. To have nearly 3 in 5 households attributing a behavior change to this program shows an amazing impact.
