Looking for products with a made in USA label can bring many benefits and make a huge difference.
These are some reasons you should be buying American made products.
Better quality products

Higher labor standards
Numerous foreign countries, which majority of fashion outlets outsource their production, to have low labor standards. The result of this is often child labor, trafficking and slavery being used to produce these goods on a high level.
When buying American made products, you know that you will not be supporting these activities, as America has strict laws surrounding labor standards, which ensures this.
Supporting US jobs
By buying American made products, you are choosing to support people who are making the clothes. This means you are supporting the creation of American jobs, and the country itself. If more people bought American made products, there would be a much higher number of jobs, and this is important as America’s unemployment rate is steadily rising.
By buying American made products, you are directly supporting America. You are creating jobs for Americans by supporting the local production of these products, as well as not supporting foreign produced products which partake in activities such as child labor, trafficking and slavery.
With these reasons in mind, check where your products are being produced and make the right choice.
