For those of you who are American Made supporters, you may be misled by businesses who say they are 100% USA Made, when in fact they aren’t. Here are a few ways to keep you from being taken advantage of.
Check to see if the company is Made in USA Certified:
When companies like All American Clothing Co. are Made in USA Certified, this means that we have been inspected in having 100% of our items as American Made. This means that the material in our product is grown in USA and the products were also manufactured in USA.
Ask for proof:
When making a purchase, another way to make sure companies are telling the truth is to ask for proof. Through programs such as ‘Made in USA Certified’ and ‘Traceability’ programs, companies can prove to customers that our products are 100% Made in USA. If you feel like a company is acting fishy, you can call their number and ask someone for more details!
Check product details:
This is where some companies who say they are ‘Made in USA’ will take advantage of you the most. Sometimes they will claim to be ‘100% Made in USA’, when actually their materials came from foreign lands. Also, businesses will say they're 100% USA Made' when only offering a few American Made items on their site, while the majority of their items are manufactured overseas. Be careful of these types of companies when shopping! This is where many ‘USA Made’ shoppers are misled!
So How Does All American Clothing Co. Prove it?
Being Made in USA Certified and one of the first companies in the world to feature 'traceability' allows us to prove to YOU that we are 100% Made in USA.
On behalf of everyone here at All American Clothing Co, I encourage all of you to continue your support in USA Made products, but I advise you to keep an eye out and shop with caution! I hope that this will help you in your efforts. If you have any more ideas on how to keep an eye out, please share!
