Our future generations matter, and supporting Made in USA companies can further contribute to a brighter and more stable future for the entire country. Independent retailers are the first to know how much of an impact buying local can have on both the community and the surrounding economy. Buying from local suppliers has the exact same impact.
Most American companies not only have sustainability practices enforced at their factories, but most also hire veterans or those with disabilities. If we can keep our environment green and give jobs to those who need them, why wouldn’t anyone buy American? A recent Parenthood Study found that Gen Z parents are more likely to prioritize eco-friendly shopping than Millennial parents. Since most Made in USA companies are eco-friendly, this could mean an increase in shoppers with more sustainable merchandise for them to choose from.
Independent Retailer has a list of suppliers, each with their own unique and moving backstory, to encourage retailers to buy American made.
