Purchasing Power

“Walk the walk” and help save jobs in the U.S. by purchasing American made goods. According to, if every American spent $3.33 more on American made products, it would create 10,000 jobs. Here is a selected list of websites where you can find products made in America

Buy American:

Reasons to Buy Local:

•    Local businesses produce more income, jobs, and tax receipts for local communities than big box stores do.

•    Local businesses are more likely to utilize local ads, banks and other services.

•    Local businesses donate more money to nonprofits and are more accountable to their local communities.

•    Supporting local businesses preserves the economic diversity of our communities and the unique character of our neighborhoods.

•    Supporting local businesses is good for the environment, because it cuts down on fuel consumption. Buying locally produced goods reduces the need to ship goods from thousands of miles away and also cuts down on the distances shoppers travel.

Interesting facts:


•    Articles on Buy Typically a carrot travels 1,838 miles to become part of a meal

•    $100 spent at a local bookstore produced $45 of local economic activity and $100 spent at a chain bookstore brought back only $13

•    If people from an average American community shifted 10% of their spending to local businesses instead of chains, it would bring an additional $235 million per year to the community’s economy.
