The average American spends more than $700 annually on holiday shopping. If just 10 percent ($70) of this was spent on gifts made in the United States, the economic impact would equate to the creation of over 200,000 American jobs, according to ABC News.
The holidays pose a particular challenge to the conscious consumer. Fighting crowds at the mall for last-minute gifts hardly reflects our intention to share something meaningful with someone we care for. Every purchase we make reflects our values, and what better time than the holidays to make your gift buying count?
If you are ready to make your holiday spending count in a meaningful way, visit the Made in America Holiday Challenge website for ideas, tips on buying items simply not available as made in the USA and a list of companies and manufacturers offering products that are at least 75 percent manufactured in the United States.
