#Shoplocal and Promote Aussie Businesses
It seems bizarre that half a lifetime ago this Scottish writer sat in the stands of a Football stadium in Glasgow listening to (amongst other entertaining but offensive chants) “Oggie! Oggie! Oggie!…Oi! Oi! Oi!”.Strange that in a new life, in a land Downunder, history repeats again repeats itself in the stands as my Aussie soulmates shout “Aussie Aussie Aussie….”. It feels brilliant that sport, comraderie and commonality can galvanise peoples. It’s brilliant but so obvious that backing the same team can produce feeling of pride and mutual respect.
That’s why at Promotion Products we have a range of promotional items Made in Australia. Not only are these products made locally but buying them from an Australian based promotional merchandise company aleviates your carbon conscience as they have far less to travel and you’re supporting local industry.
We may not all agree with Tony Abbott all of the time (or even a small portion of the time) but the concept of supporting #teamaustralia makes sense from a small business perspective.
