But Why Buy American?
Here’re the top 5 reasons to buy American made:
1. Create Jobs
According to ABC World News, if every American spent an extra $3.33 on U.S.A-made products per year, it would generate nearly 10,000 new jobs in the nation.
2. Reduces Our Carbon Footprint
Many products made in China start here by way of raw materials that are shipped to China to be manufactured and shipped back to us. Talk about unnecessary petroleum usage and emissions.
3. Supports Safe, Fair Working Conditions
Many importing countries have little or no labor regulations resulting in inhumane working conditions. Buying American supports American workers.
4. Supports the US Economy
When you buy American-made products, the money stays in the U.S. economy. Purchasing American-made keeps your dollars here working for you. Plus, American workers pay taxes on the wages they earn.
5. You’re Buying Safe Quality Products
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission ensures manufacturers produce quality products that are safe for us! When you buy, American made it means you can rest assured knowing your products comply with American consumer protection laws and safety standards.
If you like the idea of buying American made but are afraid you’ll pay more, know that these resources can help you save money while supporting our US economy.
