From all of us at JudyP, we’d like to wish you a Happy Presidents’ Day!

Here at JudyP, we’re going to celebrate our hard-earned day off by doing the things we love: shopping, relaxing, and watching our favorite TV shows. (Not to mention, indulging in some great food.)

We’d also like today to shine light on how JudyP clothing is proudly Made in the USA— and why there are so many benefits to this.

Support of Our Economy 

Buying domestically-manufactured, assembled, and packaged products is important for many reasons, including the support of our economy and the creation of jobs. Not only does investing in products made in the USA secure the future of business within our country, it puts hard-earned money back to work in America.

Better Quality Products

Made in the USA is associated with better quality— and for good reason. Products manufactured here are usually built with higher quality components, which increases the longevity of products. (Just take a look around at the products of any vintage boutique!)

Better for the Environment

When you choose products manufactured in the USA, you avoid the extra fuel expense of shipping foreign-made goods halfway around the globe. Those fuel costs are significant, too:  Nearly 60 percent of everything we buy now is made overseas, according to ABC News

Purchasing products made locally means they have less distance to travel in order to get to you, which means fewer fossil fuels being burned for shipping. This, in turn, reduces the carbon footprint of the item. So, by buying products Made in the USA, you’re supporting local industry as well as helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Win-win!

Fair Labor

Simply put, many countries have no minimum wage restrictions. When you choose products Made in the USA, you contribute to the payment of an honest day’s wages for an honest day’s work.

So, next time you are shopping (perhaps today!), consider JudyP products that are proudly Made in the USA.
