Buying domestically-manufactured, assembled and packaged products is
important for many reasons including the support of our economy and the
creation of jobs. Investing in products made in the U.S.A, not only
secures the future of business within our country, it puts your
hard-earned money back to work in America.
Here are five important reasons to consider buying domestically-made
Labor and safety laws. In the United States, consumer
protection laws are in place to ensure the production of safe, quality
products by all manufacturers. American-made products are developed
under strict compliance regulations and undergo rigorous testing in
order to guarantee this standard. These types of regulations also apply
to labor standards, which are often lower in foreign countries. Unsafe
working conditions are commonly tolerated, including those for
children. Buying domestically eliminates the support of those
Independence. By avoiding imported products, you are
strengthening America’s independence rather than looking to other
countries for support. We are able to utilize our own resources,
including our workforce, to bring more business to our country and
continue to grow industrially.
Providing jobs and fair wages. When you choose to buy in
the U.S., you are contributing to the payment of an honest day’s wage
for an honest day’s work to your fellow Americans. The U.S. is one of
the few countries with regulated wages, unlike many of those abroad.
The more American-made products you buy, the more the economy is
stimulated which results in more jobs being created and saved.
Conserving the environment. Buying products that are
produced overseas requires transportation, usually across the Atlantic
or Pacific Ocean. This wastes an extremely large amount of petroleum,
producing unnecessary emissions into the atmosphere. Also, many
products produced overseas are manufactured using dangerous,
heavily-polluting processes and chemicals. U.S. manufacturing processes
are typically cleaner for the environment and healthier for consumers.
Preserving the future of our economy. To summarize, buying
USA-made products secures future business within America. It’s about
keeping and creating jobs to allow our citizens to provide for
themselves and their families. When you purchase domestically, you are
helping to sustain and strengthen our economy for generations to come.
