3 Reasons You Should Support American-Made Clothing Brands, Jacksonville East, Florida

Though many Americans are patriotic and wish to support local businesses, they often don’t realize just how important it is to invest in  American-made clothing and products. From the corporate globalization of the past two decades and strengthening the economy to issues of transparency and ethics, below are a few reasons to actively source goods on home soil.

Why "American Made" Products Matter

1. Strengthen the Economy

For several decades, American manufacturers and small businesses have suffered under a globalized corporate landscape that’s made it nearly impossible for them to survive, let alone thrive. By purchasing American products, you're giving those businesses and manufacturers a shot against the global competition that's bedeviled them for so long. 

2. Show Your Patriotism

outerwearBuying American products is a tangible way of supporting the country and the people who work in it. While many do so with local car manufacturers like Dodge® and Chevy®, buying American-made clothing is just as important. In fact, it holds the potential to boost a manufacturing niche that’s long been dormant in this country. 

3. Transparency

When an item is produced in America, you usually have a much stronger sense of how it was made and who it was made by. With foreign companies, on the other hand, there’s far less transparency. Products and businesses in America must meet our country's labor and employment laws and practices, which means that consumers are automatically investing in ethically sourced products.
