Home >> Life in the USA >> 100% Made in the USA – Is There Such a Thing?

Is anything completely made in the USA anymore?  After exhaustive research on many companies, I would have to sadly say no.  Most companies outsource production to foreign countries and bring their product back to the U.S. to sell.  The result of this practice is domestic job loss and sub-par products on our store shelves.

Which products are actually made in the USA?

Below are various companies that manufacture and assemble 100% of their products in the United States of America.  I did NOT include companies that adorn the label below (which are many):

“Made in the USA from domestic and foreign parts.”

When you purchase products from these companies, you are supporting American workers!  Happy shopping!

You Can Help

If you truly want to help the domestic economy, become an avid label reader.  Purchase products with the “Made in the USA” label emblazoned on it.  Better yet, shop small, local businesses.  Your neighbors and community will thank you!
