We all want to help the local economy. We know it’s good for our community and ourselves. It creates jobs, and lowers our footprint. While it is unrealistic to shift overnight, actively buying 10-20% of our purchases from local businesses represents a huge boost.
At Brand New USA, we see the biggest challenge to helping our manufacturers being the availability of information. We want to make sure you know these innovators, and the breadth of their creativity. When you see their passion and vision, we know you will want to support them.
We have built a Directory of Local Manufacturers so that you can find high quality products made in your community, your region, your country.
We need your help as well: if you like your local manufacturers, tell us about them!
