Why Buy American?

Your Patriotic spending does a lot more than you think. When you buy American-made products, you are making this country better than ever in so many ways. We are in control of our country’s future each time we make a purchase. So, be mindful of your purchase decisions and choose wisely.

  1. The Job Creation Equation

    American people spending American dollars on American products equals American jobs. These jobs are the foundation of a thriving economy.

    If every American spent an extra $3.33 on U.S.-made products, it would create almost 10,000 new jobs. And, if every builder used just 5 percent more U.S.-made products, it would create 220,000 jobs.

  2. Recycling Dollars

    When you buy U.S.-made products, the proceeds remain in the U.S. economy. The money you spend then pays the workers that directly or indirectly created the product you purchased. When workers spend their money on U.S.-made products, the dollars continue to be recycled. Every American worker also pay taxes on wages earned in America.

  3. Keeping America Beautiful

    American manufacturers abide by strict regulations to protect the environment. These regulations do not exist in most of the top countries manufacturing and importing their goods into the U.S. causing massive pollution and environmental abuse.

  4. Conservation

    Importing countries shipping their materials overseas to the U.S. is an added toll on petroleum usage and increases unnecessary emissions in our atmosphere.

  5. Human Rights

    Importing countries have little or non-existent regulations or standards for working conditions. By keeping our dollars in the U.S., we are not supporting these horrible working conditions (long hours, exploitation of children, extremely low wages, etc.).

  6. Democracy

    By choosing to buy U.S.-made products you are supporting democracy.

  7. U.S. Manufacturing = More Jobs

    Each manufacturing job creates an additional 5 - 8 jobs.
