Curious to learn more about why we support regional and American made products? From sustainability to safety to quality, scroll below to read through our six main reasons for investing in American made, local products.
The benefit of purchasing products made in America goes far beyond the prosperity it brings to the companies selling them. Not only does it keep hard-earned American dollars within the United States, but it also brings in money from other countries while helping the United States to limit trading debt. Encouraging consumers to purchase American made products also creates more demand and, ultimately, new jobs for American workers.
While outsourcing manufacturing to other countries can cost less, it comes at a price to the environment. Many developing countries have very few (if any) environmental regulations. Fewer protections in place mean massive amounts of hazardous chemicals are emitted into the air, water, and soil each day. The pollution created by these manufacturing plants is only compounded by shipping; with a further distance to travel to reach its final destination, the carbon footprint only increases.
Like limited environmental regulations, there are very few safety standards in place in the countries companies frequently outsource with manufacturing. Products made in America benefit from being subjected to strict consumer protection laws and safety standards. Because American manufacturers must obey these laws, consumers can rest easy knowing their products are free of materials classified as unsafe in the United States.
We’ve all heard horror stories depicting the awful working conditions of manufacturing plants in developing countries. Employees are forced to work long hours, for a small wage, in factories with little regard for their workers’ safety. When manufacturing is kept in America, it creates more jobs for American workers and assures workers are paid livable wages, and reduces gaps in income inequality.
Our partnerships with regional and American made brands help us better serve our clients. Since the products we sell are made locally, or within the United States, we have a direct communication line with our suppliers. Rather than being held hostage by shipping or manufacturing delays from overseas production, we’re able to speak directly with our suppliers about product availability, timelines, or warranty questions.
In addition to environmental and safety regulations, American made products undergo meticulous testing to confirm their quality before making it into the hands of consumers. That means consumers of American made products receive the highest quality products with a level of craftsmanship that is second to none!
