Why buy American made clothing?
We need to remember that cheaper is not better!
‘Fast fashion' is the term used to describe today's clothing manufacturing trend. Popular clothing brands like Shein, and Old Navy, and companies like Target and Walmart, turn to mass manufacturing. They look for facilities that can turn out trendy clothing quickly and in extremely large quantities. This ‘quantity over quality' clothing is made and sold cheaply. Most of these items only last a season or less in a consumers wardrobe and then they end up in the trash.
Not all clothes made in the USA are expensive! We have discovered many affordable clothing brands made in the USA.
Take the time to read about the true cost of fast fashion and feel good about investing the time and money to find American made clothing you love.
Clothing manufacturing in the In the United States has a smaller impact on our environment.
Manufacturing facilities in the states are cleaner on the environment than those in China, Indonesia, and other countries where fast fashion clothing is made. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has guidelines and strict regulations on manufacturing facilities. They focus on sustainable manufacturing and toxic chemical controls.
Clothing made in the USA is less likely to contain toxic chemicals like PFAS, lead, and phthalates. The EPA regulates the use of these chemicals in product manufacturing. Other countries do not. PFAS are found in water repellent products and can absorb into our skin and get into our bloodstream. PFAS are ‘forever chemicals' and they do not break down overtime.
Many of the clothing brands on our list have green manufacturing facilities powered by solar energy and use eco-friendly packaging.
Clothing manufactured overseas uses more resources to get to consumers. Products need to be shipped or flown long distances using natural resources and fossil fuels. Many of the clothing brands on our list ship directly to consumers which lessons the environmental impact.
