Shopping, in any form, is a fun and exciting experience. These days, you can easily purchase the object of your desire without as much as a second though. But, perhaps you should give the next thing you buy a second though, one that deals with where the product is made. For years, the government and even local businesses have been decrying the lack of American products that are produced in the USA. However, retailers are making the move to change that. Rather than fill their inventory with overseas made product, they are brining American goods to the consumer. Below are just a few reasons why you should buy Made in the USA.
Sure, anyone can buy a foreign made dress or kitchen appliance for a cheap price. However, most people do not appreciate that these products last no longer than five minutes. Therefore, not only are you out of a product, but you’ve also wasted money. On the other hand, when you use USA online shopping you benefit from products that are built to last. American products are known to be durable, resilient, and manufactured with absolute customer care. This way, when you buy American, you can rest assured that you are buying the best.
Protecting American Jobs and the Economy
Another great advantage to buying US made products is that it protects the economy and on-shore jobs. Rather than shipping a clothing plant overseas, American companies are able to keep those plants on-shore because there is a demand for their products. Furthermore, when American companies keep jobs on-shore, you can also be sure that the plant conditions are held to a high standard. Foreign manufacturing plants are not only unsafe and dangerous, but they fail to respect the locals and conditions.
There are hundreds of news stories daily, but one type of story that you always hear about is how foreign made products are made with low quality materials that pose a threat to the public. When you strive for USA shopping, you do not need to worry that the product you buy has harmful chemicals or that it will malfunction. US made products are manufactured with high safety standards and are produced to coincide with US safety regulations. You’ll find no lead or other poisonous substance in your American made products.
Do Your Part
Supporting your economy and your country is a great thing, but those are not the only benefits you derive from buying US made. When you buy products that are manufactured in the United States, you are also ensuring that those that produce your products receive an honest day’s work and that whatever is produced is done so at high quality and safety standards. Protect your home, your country, and your family by buying American made.

The Toronto Project:
Hi Flickr, I have been busy finishing my degree, and now I’m done!! I have finally completed my bachelor’s in biology and chemistry. I just returned from a trip to Toronto. I have taken a fascination with the city in many ways and I had a list of things to do and experience there. In my three full days of staying there and shooting I experienced a lot and took 4927 photos, I walked dozons of kilometers, and visited many interesting areas. Some of the highlights include; the PATH system, Hockey Hall of Fame, Union Station, all of the major financial building complexes, CN Tower, Old City Hall, Osgoode Hall, Art Gallery of Ontario, Kensington Market, Chinatown, Sunnybrook Park, Cabbagetown, Necropolis, Euclid Hall, Gooderham Houses, Queen’s Park Legislative Buildings, All of the old colleges of the University of Toronto, Royal Conservatory of Music, Annex style houses, Yorkville Houses and firehall, Casa Loma, Spadina Museum, the Royal Ontario Museum, Allen Gardens, Mackenzie House, St Michael’s Church, Metropolitan United Church, Flatiron Building, St Lawrence Market, Toronto’s first post office, St. Lawrence Hall, Sculpture Garden, St. James Church, Gooderham and Worts Distillary, Cherry Street Hotel, and Little Trinity Church and the surrounding neighborhood of Corktown.
This is just an image of a large series that I’m doing. The primary goal of this project is to document the diverse types of architecture that one can find in Toronto. Much of it has a British influence or American such as Richardsonian Romanesque when it comes to older buildings. But since Toronto is also a modern alpha global city and a global financial city it has a diverse and impressive amount of modern skyscrapers and post modern architecture. Its diversity is also shown in its people in that atleast 50% of the people living in Toronto weren’t even born in Canada, making Toronto the world’s most ethnically diverse city. It is extremely colourful and every corner has a new surprise. One can pass down the same street multiple times and stil find surprises like little shops you didn’t even notice. I can’t wait to return, but I need work in order to get down there again.
