My only compensation for this post is the excitement from finding so many patriotic Made in the USA products.
Memorial Day and the 4th of July are right around the corner. It’s the time of year for Americana themed decorations. There’s something so nostalgic and inspiring about decor with a patriotic theme. I’m a believer in being purposeful in my shopping. A big focus of my purposeful purchasing is that I search out products that are Made in the USA. I always look to purchase products that are American made, but it seems particularly fitting to purchase patriotic products that are Made in the USA with Memorial Day and the Fourth coming up.
I’ve shared my journey to making the commitment to purchase products that are Made in the USA and you can read it HERE. When I go shopping I look at each item to see where it was made. When I have an option to purchase an item that was manufactured here within our borders, I almost always purchase that item, even if it’s a bit more expensive. I choose to have my dollars support American workers. It’s also better for the environment to purchase Made in the USA products because 1) we have environmental standards that don’t exist or aren’t enforced in many other countries and 2) the products don’t have to be shipped as far to market, so that saves fuel consumption. Additionally, I feel more confident in the quality of products that are manufactured here than are manufactured in inexpensive foreign factories that don’t have the same standards of education and safety that we do . (For my international friends, I also purposefully chose to purchase items manufactured in countries that are our allies when those products are available.)
