The implementation of the rec in a specific geographical area can be seen as a tool to face the dangers of the globalized system, in that it increases the sustainable wealth of the community and its environment and promotes circuits of local exchange. When someone buys vegetables with recs, with his gesture he wants to favor that the production line (including the farmer, the wholesaler, the driver, the grocer, etc.) of these vegetables is of proximity.

On the contrary, if the same transaction (purchase of vegetables) is made in euros, the citizen has no guarantee that the supply line is local: long distance production, transnational transport, etc. From a macroeconomic point of view, we can agree that, if the population of the rec territory wants to promote local products and services, with its use it stimulates desirable economic activity, which respects people and the planet more.
