Made in the USA: 4 Reasons to Buy American

BLG-1569-Boutique-Support--Made-in-the-USA2

We love all fashion equally, be it from across the pond or close to home. But in the spirit of the country’s birthday, we’re discriminating – for just a day. Here are four reasons to feel good about buying your blues (and much more) from the red, white, and blue.

1. The brands. Jack Rogers. HABITUAL. Lucky Brand. Need we say more? There are literally too many top-notch “Made in the USA” brands to list (and we love them all).

2. Environmental protection laws. Companies that manufacture in the United States are subject to EPA regulations that help protect the land, air, and water. Plus, if they’re made in America, they’re already in America – hello, tiny carbon footprint.

3. It’s patriotic. There’s a feel-good element to that “Made in the USA” label that just can’t be denied. Call it a discreet nod to American pride.

4. It boosts our economy. More American manufacturing facilities mean more jobs in the States. Companies make their money stateside and reinvest it in the community. Employees get paid and spend their wages in the U.S. It’s like a really expanded version of keeping it all in the family.

Our Made-in-America Fashion: Eva Franco & More Boutique opens Wednesday, July 3, at 11AM ET.
