Did you know July 2 is Made in the USA Day? It's true. And now more than ever, it's important to buy products made right here in America.

Buying American-made products is more than just a patriotic act, it helps to stabilize our economy by creating jobs and keeping profits on American soil. Buying from local businesses strengthens the community because your dollars stay in the community, and in turn support your neighbors, schools, and the local economy. Moreover, it's better for the environment. The United States has stricter manufacturing regulations than many countries meaning a greener and cleaner product. Plus, with fewer miles to travel, less fossil fuel is used in transit.

Remember, our government doesn't control foreign labor standards but in America we protect our workers with regulated working conditions for the health and safety of workers. Businesses can offer more competitive wages, too. Buying products from American businesses helps keep our economy robust by giving businesses more opportunities to grow and buy from other American-made companies.

Consumer Reports recently announced 80% of Americans would prefer to buy American-made products. We agree! That's why at Elmer's Flag and Banner, we offer multiple options including products manufactured in the USA and products that use USA-made fabric AND are manufactured in the USA.

Shouldn't Old Glory be made in the USA? Come into Elmer's Flag and Banner today where every American flag we sell is made in America from US-made materials, and always will be. We would love to show you our flags and other patriotic selections just in time for the 4th of July!
