As consumers, we are becoming much more aware of the long-term effects of our shopping habits on the communities and the country we live in. And that’s a good thing.
I am a committed made-in-Canada shopper, and I’d like to share my reasons with you.
- When we buy Canadian we impact our economy in positive ways: every dollar we spend on Canadian-made clothing and other products has a ripple effect that far exceeds the original purchase.
- Buying Canadian means we protect the environment by reducing our carbon footprint. Compare the energy used in transporting clothing made in Asia with clothing made in, say, Montreal.
- When we buy Canadian-made clothing we can be confident that its production has met Canada’s health, safety and labour standards
From time to time I’ll be sharing information with you about great Canadian-made clothing and accessories, so stay tuned–
