Purchasing goods manufactured in America has many perks for our country and your family. Any item with the “Made in The USA” marking on it has saved on fossil fuel and pollution, since it skipped over the process of shipping the item from overseas. Also, these American owned and operated companies are a big help to the economy by producing jobs and economic growth on US soil. We have done a little of the shopping for you, so you don’t have to waste time checking manufacturing labels when filling up your cart.

This company manufactures only organic materials free from the toxic chemicals, which is present in typical bedding.

Step 2 manufactures items for almost everyone in the family. Most of their baby and kids toys, kids furniture, and home and garden items are made and assembled in the USA. However, like many larger companies a few of their items are imported or have an imported part. In an effort to maintain transparency, Step 2 has made three distinctive labels so their consumers easily know where their products are coming from. Look out for the “Made in USA”, “Made in USA of US and Imported Parts”, and “Made in Country-of-Origin” labels.
Looking for a toy company completely manufactured in the USA but does a little extra to help out the environment? Green Toys is what you are looking for! All of their products are made from recycled plastics. That’s the cutest example of reduce, reuse, and recycle we have ever seen.
