Why Buy American

Here at Brynn Capella we take pride in the fact that we manufacture our handbags right here in America. More than 90 percent of clothes and shoes sold in America are made elsewhere. Buying American-Made products is SO important for a number of reasons. For one, it creates more jobs! Job creation serves as one of the strongest foundations of a thriving economy (something I think we all could benefit from). But seriously think about it… if every American spent an extra $3.00 on American-made products it would create almost 10,000 new jobs! Hence, if we manufacture and buy American-made products then job creation would sky rocket which would lead to a booming economy people!

Another great reason to buy American-made products is because the proceeds would REMAIN IN THE AMERICAN ECONOMY. So instead of your money going to some country overseas like Cambodia, the money you spent on that new kitchen table would, in turn, pay the American workers that directly or indirectly created the product you purchased. Which ultimately means that those American dollars would just keep on being recycled.

Aside from recycling American dollars and watering our very parched economy, buying American-made is also a great way to support human rights. Importing countries have little to no regulations or standards for working conditions. For example, some of the working conditions that workers in importing countries have to endure are; long hours, exploitation of children and extremely low wages. By buying American-made, you’re NOT supporting these horrible working conditions.

Hopefully by now we’ve convinced you that buying American-made is the way to go, but if not, I’m sure you’ll start to re-think it after watching this very eye-opening video:
