This week we celebrated Earth day. On April 22, 1970 millions of people took to the streets to protest the negative impacts of 150 years of industrial development. We are no strangers to the negative impacts of industralisation, global warming and unsustainable industries. Global ecological awareness has started growing ever since. Earth day is now an annual and global event that urges civic action, participation, and awareness.
Faith leaders, including Pope Francis, connect Earth Day with protecting God’s greatest creations, humans, biodiversity and the planet that we all live on.
Earth day acts as a day for reflectiona and action to protect biodiversity and our home. The grassroots movements supports the adoption of global frameworks in governments, business and personal endeavours to change our habits and work towards a sustainable future.
At #clutchmadedotcom we believe that taking back what it means to #makeintheusa will help us step closer towards a more sustainable future. Why? Because making in the #usa not only supports local businesses and local economies, but it is also more ethical and environmentally friendly than outsourcing all our labour and production. If we make locally and crafted by hand we are reducing the emissions it takes to mass-produce something in another less developed country where there aren't the same environmental or ethical standards.
So what do we do at #clutchmade to bring our #madeinusa vision to life? We work with people who want to design and produce a product in the USA. From start to finish we source, sample, produce and manufacture the products and help designers fully embody the made in USA movement through their brand identity.
