Buying American-Made Gets Hip in NYC's East Village
The importance of buying American-made products, and supporting domestic manufacturing, is catching on. A good example is the clothing boutique Dusty Buttons on East 9th Street in New York City's funky East Village. Located just a few yards from the venerable hipster hangout of Tompkins Square Park, Dusty Buttons proudly specializes in selling only American-made clothing.
As one of the store's owners explains, American-made garments are manufactured under worker-safe conditions, contain no toxic chemicals, and do not bear the "enormous carbon footprint" of goods shipped across the ocean.
A look through the Dusty Buttons blog shows a colorful array of American-made clothes and satisfied shoppers.
