Trendwatching have an interesting angle on the local debate in their new newsletter about the comeback of local with things that have “a sense of place” that are surfacing in a world dominated by globalization.

“(STILL) MADE HERE encompasses new and enduring manufacturers and purveyors of the local.

The TW guys have done some great gathering for examples on this trend. Here’s a spot on Tesco’s new packaging:
