ISSUE N°5: Made in USA

ISSUE N°5: Made in USA

Sophie Blake NY is celebrating The Fourth with style because we are ...    "Made in USA"!

Federal Trade Commission Made in USA Standards

“The jewelry trade is quickly dying in the U.S. as more production moves overseas,” says Stofenmacher. “What some companies fail to notice is that while they may be saving some money on lower labor costs, they also risk lower quality craftsmanship, increase in middlemen and a lack of awareness around ethical labor and sourcing practices.”

- Vanessa Stofenmacher, 30, Designer of Vrai & Oro, ethical and sustainable Bridal jewelry line

We are so proud to see a generation of women who are educated consumers. You don't just care about the quality of your baubles, but you also care if they’re ethically and sustainably sourced. We want to thank you, our SB Tribe for supporting not only our brand but family owned businesses in NYC that we are proud to partner with.

The "Made in USA" mark is a country of origin label that indicates the product is entirely made in the United States. The Made in USA label is regulated by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). It is a growing movement encouraging Americans to seek high quality products produced domestically under American labor and environmental laws.

3 Reasons to buy Made in USA products

1. Job Creation

For all you math nerds out there, here's a simple equation for you. America People + Spending American Dollars + For American Products = Lots of American Jobs. Job creation is the foundation of a thriving economy. 

"Jobs are the foundation of a thriving economy. If every American spent an extra $3.33 on American-made products, it would create almost 10,000 new jobs."

2. Conservation

Did you know that countries that import materials that are shipped overseas to the U.S. increases use of petroleum and chemical emissions into our atmosphere. 

"As Americans we need to make it a priority to reduce our carbon footprint and champion a sustainable future with sustainable resources."

3. Human Rights

Importing countries have almost non-existent regulations for their working conditions. Goods that are made in overseas factories might force laborers to work long hours, employ child laborers, refuse to pay their laborers fairly, or endanger workers with a hazardous working environments. 

"By keeping our dollars in the U.S., we are not supporting these horrible working conditions. "
