Most Americans take the label of the items they own for granted. Unless it’s made from your grandmother, you’ll rarely find an item made in America. Products made in American are the perfect opportunity for entrepreneurs, Americans creating jobs for Americans. Despite all the hype around national pride, the trend for purchasing American-made items is not catching on so quickly.
It’s not totally our fault, however. Many companies portray themselves as All American, but more than often; this refers to their design style, not their products’ origin. Companies cannot resist outsourcing their manufacturing across seas. Even with the costs of shipping, the price of overseas labor holds a comparative advantage with America. And your phone, for example, that says Made in China was most likely assembled there but using parts from three other countries.
The silver lining is that Americans are beginning to take a stance. Websites featuring handmade crafty items like Etsy.com or Storenvy.com have increased the availability of American-made items and even helped spiked the startup of hundreds of small businesses. USA Love List, a website that only features products made in the USA, showcases the crème de la crop items American businesses are offering all over the country and aim to support the workers that make them. USA Love List describes the following as their main objectives, “First, to tell you about the very best of Made in the USA products. Second, to make it easy for you to find them and recommend them to your friends. Third, to encourage you to ask for them in stores and demand them from the companies you want to do business with.” They are not solely helping to market these products but market the idea of American made.
