Here at MyPostalUniforms.com, we believe it is important that we provide items that are manufactured right here in the USA. That is why we strive to sell products that are both USA made as well as Union made. We are very proud that the majority of our products are made here in the United States of America, and that we also carry a large amount of items made by union members.
While it makes sense that USPS uniforms should be manufactured in the USA, some people may wonder if it matters if the other products they consume should be as well. We’re strong supporters of USA made items, and in case you aren’t sure why, we’ve got some pretty compelling reasons to share with you.
Of course, the most obvious reason is that if you are purchasing American-made products, you are purchasing goods from other Americans. Americans who have jobs. Unemployment is a big problem that needs to be tackled, and USA-made items create American jobs. Many items that we consume are now manufactured overseas, which is why it is important to buy American goods whenever we can. Factories often lay off employees or close down, but if we keeping shopping for products made in the USA, we may be able to prevent that.
Another compelling reason to buy items that are made in the USA is that working conditions in other countries are often poor. Many workplaces in the countries we buy from have less or even no work regulations. In the USA, we place great value on our workplace standards and labor requirements. When you buy products not made in the USA, you are supporting an industry that often has dreadful work conditions, very long work days, and employs young children.
The environment is another big factor concerning this issue. This issue is also multi-faceted. One of the major concerns is that when we buy products that are manufactured in other countries, we are often buying products from countries with few or no environmental regulations. China, for example, has some of the worst pollution in the world. In many areas of China the air is not considered safe enough to breathe. Air pollution in China is indirectly responsible for the death of many Chinese citizens every year. It’s not only the air that is polluted either. The water and soil is also not safe. Not only that, but the cost of importing these items is great as well. This includes in terms of money, and in terms of the emissions going into the environment when items are transported.
We were inspired to create this informative post after promoting our new USPS work t-shirts, which are exclusively made in the USA. These union made quality shirts are a great choice for our customers. If you’re interested, you can take a look at them here.
We hope you’re as big a fan of USA made products as we are. We will continue to offer quality USA made products on our website to meet all your USPS needs.
