How To Buy American-Made Products And Support Local Businesses For The Holidays
You might be surprised to know that so many gifts this year have been made overseas. Many of these gifts are cheaply made, and might be difficult to recycle or reuse come next year.
Luckily, there are a few simple steps you can take to ensure that your holiday shopping is done domestically. First, you'll want to make sure you know what your product is made out of. If it can't be recycled, then it doesn't belong on your list. In addition to the materials, make sure you buy from companies who manufacture their products locally! Buying from American-based companies also support our local communities by creating jobs and boosting the economy.
Why Purchasing American-Made Products Matters
Americans spend over $400 billion every year on imported goods, but this can be avoided if we buy American made products!
It may seem like more expensive is always better and it usually saves you time looking for cheaper alternatives. But while these lower cost items often come with a high environmental price tag too--and sometimes even worse social consequences down the road- there are some great gifts available right here at home in America that won't break your bank account or harm our planet's ecosystems when shipped overseas from factories abroad to get processed before being delivered straight into consumers' hands.
What To Look For In A Quality Item
When you're out shopping, it can sometimes be hard to tell which items are made in America and which ones come from overseas. A few things to look for when you're shopping are the country of origin label (look for "Made in USA") or an indication that the products are made domestically.
If you aren't sure where the product originated, there are a few ways to find out. Some items will say where they were manufactured either on the label or on the website's description. Alternatively, if you know what company is selling it, google their headquarters location and see if they manufacture the item in question.
How To Support Local Businesses This Holiday Season
Although it's difficult for many people to believe, the majority of the products on our wish lists are made overseas. This is bad for both our wallets and the environment.
So what can you do? Well, one of the first steps to take is understanding the materials that your product is made out of. If it can't be recycled or reused next year, then it doesn't belong on your list. Next, you'll want to make sure you buy from companies who manufacture their products locally! Buying from American-based companies also supports our local communities by creating jobs and boosting the economy.
