Tuesday Opinion: Why buying American is the new trend.



78% of Americans would rather buy a Made in America product. More than 60% of all respondents in the Consumer Reports, National Research Center, said they'd buy an American product even if it cost 10% more than an imported product.

Why?

Today more than ever Americans are concerned about keeping Americans working and American manufacturing strong. Also fueling the new shift back to domestic products are concerns over human right's violations, environmental pollution, child labor and a lack of consumer and government controls into the use of toxic chemical substances. In China, middle-class women now routinely import breast milk and other infant products because they understand that high levels of environmental contaminants impact a child's healthy development. 

In the juvenile markets we are seeing a return to buying local and sustainable infant products. Baby Does ... NYC is committed to promoting American workers, jobs and industries while sourcing organic, local and sustainable products for our readers. Here are some providers we love:
