Why buy American?
Whenever an American buys an American-made product, a majestic, rippling American flag magically appears somewhere in the country (like in these American flag photos). You know what else happens? The purchase becomes more than just a purchase. It becomes an investment in the future of the American economy. That’s because a purchase increases the demand for whatever you just purchased. Demand increases price until supply increases to meet it, which will require more people to work, which allows more money to be spent. If people are spending on American-made things, the cycle continues. If they’re spending on imports, then the dollars they used disappear with the purchase.
Think about it this way: the $10 you spend on buying something made in America goes directly into that worker’s pocket. Then they use it to pay their babysitter. Then the babysitter uses it to buy gas. The cashier gives it as change to someone else, who uses it to pay for their college textbook, and so on. That $10 is suddenly worth a lot more! The money stays circulating in the economy, and hundreds of people get use out of it to pay for the essential things we all need (like 4th of July decorations!). In other words, when you buy American-made things, you’re helping keep the money where it’s needed: in the hands of everyday Americans. Buying American can actually make a real difference in the lives of your community and neighbors. Patriotism isn’t just for Independence Day, although it is one of the best 4th of July ideas.
So, if you’re interested in keeping some of that money on the table for real, then it’s a good idea to consider making an effort to patronize American business. You can check to see if whatever store you’re browsing has a “Made in America” or “Made in the U.S.A.” department or search capability, or look for smaller businesses.

Smartipants Reusable Cloth Diapers
Why would you use cloth diapers when disposable are at your disposal? Well, for starters, cloth diapers contain no chemicals, which can cause skin irritations, among other things, according to the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles blog. They’re also better for the environment and cost-effective over time, particularly if you start with your first child and plan on having more than one. Finally, and this could be the kicker, “using a cloth diaper allows your infant to feel the wet sensation against their skin and become more aware of when they have gone potty.” If it leads to easier potty training later on, we’re all for it, so if you’re curious about reusables, maybe start small with a pretty handmade set like this one.

Cheddar, which was first made in the English village of Cheddar in the 12th century, is popular enough nowadays that it has its own holiday: National Cheddar Day, which not surprisingly was started by the folks at Tillamook.
Mast chocolate has the requisite millennial pedigree: It began life in Brooklyn, when the young Mast Brothers decided they wanted to get into the confectionary business. But life got in the way in the most delightful of ways, and the brothers ended up moving their facilities and their families to Westchester County (just north of the northernmost part of New York City). Get the variety pack. It’s worth it.

Despite NECCO Wafer’s unusual and perhaps a bit old-fashioned flavors (including licorice, wintergreen, clove, and cinnamon), the fanbase was “shook,” until white knight, Spangler Candy (mentioned above) purchased the entire operation. Expect NECCO Wafters to back on the shelves by mid-summer. Yay!

Toms of Maine toothpaste
Toms of Maine began in 1968 when Tom and Kate Chappell moved to Maine in search of a healthier, simpler life for their family.

Today all of Tom’s of Maine toothpaste (as well as their stick deodorant) is still manufactured in Sanford, Maine.

It’s available in four delicious scents: Bohemian rose, citrus oro, lavender, and verde.
