Here are 4 great reasons you should look into what you are purchasing and where you have the opportunity to support Australian made - do so!
The Australian Made campaign is doing a great job at promoting the green kangaroo again and bringing back to life the great name Australian manufacturing has in the product market.
We have listed our top three reasons to support Aussie Made:
1. Keep your money within Australia.
As global economics may fluctuate and the US dollar influences your pricing from overseas manufacturers, you can rest assured that you have a greater chance at stabilised pricing by supporting Australian businesses. Your money will be put directly into Australia's economic growth.
2. Quality control
Australian manufacturing is synonymous with quality and longevity. Your Australian made product is likely to last a lot longer and provide better outcomes over its life than a similar imported good.
Also, having the ability to contact your manufacturer and work closely with them on projects is too often taken for granted!
3. Sustainable practice
With Australian regulation and national business standards, the likelihood your product was manufactured ethically and better sustainability practices are far greater than imported goods with next to no minimum wage requirements or environmental authority.
Further to this, Australian Made certified companies are required to uphold levels of transparency of their actions within the supply chain process.
4. Support Ethical & Local Business:
You can directly make a difference by supporting causes and positive initiatives through what you choose to buy.
