American Made Matters
If you’ve not heard of the American Made Matters, it’s an organization “dedicated to educating consumers on the importance of buying American-made products.” It’s estimated that each dollar spent on American-made goods invests an additional $1.32 in the American economy.
Many Americans are aware of the need to encourage and sustain industry in our country, but they don’t know how to do that. American Made Matters Day helps spread awareness about the actions they can take, and how to support American businesses that produce consumer goods. In anticipation of the holiday shopping season, the group has made November 19th American Made Matters Day. The purpose is simple: consumers are asked to buy one American-made product on American Made Matters Day.
From the organization’s website: “November 19th has been declared American Made Matters Day not only because of the positive impact that manufacturing and distribution has on jobs, but also because of the impact it has on local communities, the U.S. economy, product safety, the environment, and the future of America.”
