Buying American Products - Quality Over Quantity

With nearly everything we buy nowadays coming from places with cheap labor costs and poor living and working conditions, it’s only natural that the quality is not going to be that great. Large clothing brands participate by ordering garments by the hundred of thousands. These garments are then forced onto workers getting paid less than a dollar a day. While the price in the of these garments in the USA might be considered “Cheap,” someone in another country is paying the high cost. When buying an American Made garment, you guarantee that the garment is being made by someone who is enjoying their craft and getting paid a living wage.

While it might not seem like much, this process burns significant fossil fuels and contributes largely to the greenhouse gases negatively affecting our planet.

Buy garments that you only need to buy once.
