Why buy American made face masks?
Rebuilding America’s Medical Supply Chain
Our current reliance on foreign PPE and other medical products to protect American citizens puts our supply chain and front-line workers at risk. It is critical to our public health and national security that we have domestic production of medical devices.
It is cheaper to make products overseas because other countries often have little to no laws protecting the rights of their workers. These factories exploit child labor, pay unfair wages, and can have extremely dangerous working conditions.
Because of this lack of regulation in overseas factories, the quality and safety of the product isn’t guaranteed. We often see products being recalled for unsafe use and dangerous chemicals. Domestic manufacturing allows a company to be geographically closer to their facility, allowing them to implement safety and quality standards firsthand.
Jobs and Our Economy
Workers in the US lose millions of jobs when we move our manufacturing overseas. When you buy American manufactured products, you help create jobs in the US. When manufacturing operations are based in America, they pay US taxes that go towards our communities. Thriving American businesses stimulate our economy.
Lower Carbon Footprint
When goods are manufactured outside of the US, they have further to travel across land and sea. Consequently, companies are burning more fossil fuels and emitting more greenhouse gases with every mile they travel to get their products back to you. Buying American made means American shipped, for faster lead times and lower carbon footprints.
American Businesses vs. American Made
Be weary of companies that boast products “shipped from America” or claim to be American based companies. That doesn’t necessarily mean their products are manufactured within the US or that their products still come with American production quality standards.

The Value of American Made
America’s dependence on personal protective equipment (PPE) is at an all-time high. Reliance on foreign
PPE to protect American citizens puts our supply chain and front-line workers at risk. We are striving to
stabilize the medical supply chain and wean America off its dependence on foreign imports, while creating
manufacturing jobs for our fellow Americans here in the U.S. We are seizing the opportunity to bring
autonomy and reliability back to America’s medical supply chain.
