There are a lot of things we love about our company: an incredible culture of trust and growth, amazing team members, and the opportunity to partner with some top-notch businesses are just a few.
In honor of the 4th of July, we want to take a second to say how much we love being committed to creating our products right here on American soil. There are several compelling reasons to choose American-made products. Here are just a few of our favorites:
American-made goods provide valuable jobs to community members. If each American spent just an additional $3.33 each week on U.S. made products, it would create 10,000 new jobs! Can you imagine how many new jobs would be created if we committed to purchasing mostly American-made products?
U.S. run businesses strengthen communities. They rely on local labor, electricians, plumbers, etc. to keep their business running smoothly. Additionally, as mentioned above, they provide jobs to local community members.
Lower Carbon Footprint
Cargo ships produce an incredible amount of pollution. In fact, just a few cargo ships are to blame for most of the earth’s pollution. When goods are made in the U.S., they don’t need to be shipped across the sea to reach the American consumer.
Additionally, American production facilities must meet strict environmental regulations. Environmental regulations are often lacking in developing countries where companies typically outsource production.
Provide Safe Working Conditions
American businesses are held to high standards when it comes to employee safety. Operations are expected to treat team members fairly and provide safe working conditions.
Increased Product Quality
U.S.-made products must meet carefully regulated safety standards. The label “made in the U.S.A.” seems to offer an unspoken assurance that a product is high-quality and built to last.
Powerblanket: Made in America
Our commitment to produce our products in the U.S. has yielded incredible results. Most notably, we’ve loved the opportunity we’ve had to connect with our community and employ some incredible, hard-working team members. Each person on our team has an incredible story and we love that our product gives each team member the opportunity to work, provide for their families, and reach their goals.
