Everything is so expensive anyway so I decided to find products that were made in USA. I still occasionally shop at big box stores like Wayfair and Home Depot, but I’ve dramatically increased purchasing from small businesses. I want to buy products from companies that are focused on local production and transportation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. I’m also concerned about the overconsumption of cheap goods from overseas made through the exploitation of natural resources and impoverished labor forces. This includes corporate America’s impoverishment of our local American labor force, by turning our country into a service economy. Cheap goods made through exploitation are cheaper because of that exploitation. The corporate elites have given us an unreasonable expectation for cheap goods.

We live in a consumer-based economy. 70% of our economy is based on consumption. So it’s extremely important to spend our money locally to help our local communities. With the recent supply chain issues we must buy local, support local or small businesses, and stop exporting good-paying jobs. The elites in American corporations (and the government) don’t care about us. The only way to stop the continuous corporatization of America is to #buylocal #buysmall. All we have is each other.

P.S. I’m doing other things such as banking at a credit union, getting prescriptions from local pharmacy (this was hard to find), farmers markets, lowering my consumption, buy nothing groups (barter system), stopped using google in favor of Qwant, Ecosia, or Duck Duck Go search engines, start a container garden, mutual aid. I’d love to hear more ideas if you can share!
