Not many realize how vital it is to purchase American Made products for the sustainability of our country’s current economic turmoil.
For those who know, but are deterred by the daunting look at the price tags of products made in America compared to cheaper items made elsewhere it can be a challenging task to commit to the domestic common good.
We understand that here at Manchester Wood, and we’re proud to say the affordability of our products is evident, competitively priced with box stores selling items at lesser quality with a lifetime nowhere near the heirloom longevity we provide with our solid wood furniture.
In a recent study on ABC’s World News with Diane Sawyer, they found that if every person in America spent $3.33 a year on American made products it would produce more than 10,000 jobs.
That’s a small amount for such a dramatic return in investment for your fellow man.
Flag toting and patriotism aside, in America we follow strict guidelines to protect our natural resources, environment, and civil liberties. Unfortunately, much of what you purchase from overseas does not follow such principle. With a dramatically failing eco-system in China, political turmoil, and civil injustice, (Please watch: WAL-MART: The High Cost of Low Price) I think you’ll quickly make a moral decision to step outside the mass produced realm, and take a look at what we still make here at home.
