To combat this issue, an online store was created: Nate's American Made Store.
* This is a sponsored post for which I was compensated.
Because American-made products are often difficult to find, it makes it hard for citizens of the United States to support the jobs within our communities. This is exactly why Nate's American Made Store was created. The stores are here to celebrate our country, while also supporting it.
To find out just how much Nate's American Made Store cares about the United States, read this excerpt from their "About Us" page:
Nate's American Made Store concept was conceived nearly 5 years ago, as I watched our factories close and jobs offshored. Through the years, I’ve listened to our politicians argue about what kind of economic stimulus and job bill would create the most jobs, all the while they created more free (not necessarily fair) trade agreements shipping more and more of our jobs to developing countries. The solution is slow to come from Washington, a grass roots answer is achievable—the American people have a choice to purchase products made here, at home, in the U.S.A. When buying an American made product you keep the jobs here and have the peace of mind knowing they were made under safe and fair working conditions.
This, my friends, is a company worth supporting.
If you're interested in the kinds of goodies that Nate's American Made Store features, check out some of the products that I found:
This bird feeder is made specifically for Orioles. The feeder is designed to hold two orange halves plus jelly and is made from up to 90 percent recycled plastic. Like all products in Nate's American Made Store, the bird feeder is American made.
I love owls, and I know that many of the readers here on Freelance Lady also love the cute little birds. This is why I decided to mention the Retro Owl Double-Up shirt found on Nate's American Made Store. The shirt gives the appearance of layers and is fitted around the bust and shoulders. It is made with environmentally friendly water-based inks and dyes, 100% pre-shrunk organic cotton, and is American made.
