A new effort in the Flint area is encouraging people to support local businesses and encourage buying products produced in the region.
The Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce on Monday announced details of the effort, called the "Made in Flint & Genesee Campaign."
The chamber says in a statement that the campaign encourages local investment, strengthens community connections and promotes local prosperity.
Registered businesses that make, assemble and sell their products in Flint and Genesee County will appear on a page of the chamber's website. Participants will also have access to the "Made in Flint & Genesee" logo that's designed to inform shoppers.
