Why do we care so much about U.S.-made products? It’s a complex topic that we’ve given a lot of thought to. We understand that overseas production can be less expensive, that raw materials often have to come from all over the world regardless of where a product is “made,”; and that offshore manufacturing can create jobs in countries that do not have many other opportunities and resources. For us, it comes down to three main benefits that we care about and want to offer to you:

Sustainability: The first and most obvious reason for us – sustainability. We strive to bring you the most eco-friendly shipping products, but they aren’t enough. We also want to get you those products in as environmentally thoughtful a way as possible. American factories abide by fairly strict regulations to protect the environment, which are not in place in most of the top manufacturing and importing countries worldwide. So the process of creating products there is often more polluting. Add to it the environmental cost of shipping products, which is a no-brainer.

Jobs and the economy: We all are anchors in the effort to improve our economy and spur jobs. By sourcing American-made products, we (and, in turn - you!) are expanding your economic impact. According to ABC World News, if every American spent an extra $3.33 on U.S.-made products yearly, it would generate nearly 10,000 new jobs nationwide. When workers spend their money on products made here, the dollars continue to be recycled, benefiting the local economy through the “economic multiplier effect.” These manufacturing workers are also paying taxes to the U.S. on their wages.

Integrity and workplace conditions: Many of the top importing countries have minimum standards in place for working conditions. By prioritizing U.S. manufacturing and sourcing from companies that have a strong commitment to labor standards, we ensure that the products you purchase from us are made by workers who are treated and compensated fairly.

Don’t let your commitment to the U.S. go unnoticed!

According to a consumer reports study, eight in ten American consumers prefer products made in this country, and over 60% would spend 10% more for these homegrown goods. Let your customers know when specific products they purchase are American-made (or even U.S. assembled in some way). The same Consumer Reports study mentioned above showed that consumers are frustrated at not readily identify products made in the U.S.A. You can do this with a note in their package or on your website. Showcase any efforts you are making to support the U.S. through your social media channels.
