In the past few years, there has been a renaissance of discovering local businesses and supporting and promoting the "buy local" movement. Studies have repeatedly shown that investment in local business creates a more prosperous and vibrant community.
This philosophy also applies to North American made products.
The paper industry alone employs over 377,000 people in the United States, with 100 jobs at a paper mill being associated with 325 jobs in the local area. North American manufacturers also invest in local communities and charities.
It's important to know where your paper comes from. At Yuletide, our copy paper is proudly made right here in Tennessee.
Why does buying North American matter?
- Buying North American paper supports hundreds of thousands of hometown jobs and strengthens local economies
- North American manufacturers contribute 20 percent more than imports to operate in the U.S., investing in local communities and contributing more in corporate taxes
- North American manufacturers meet high regulatory standards put in place to protect public health, workers rights, and the environment.
- North American companies ensure transparent operations and business practices, work with trustworthy suppliers and demonstrate a responsible use of resources
Buying North American paper is the responsible environmental, economic and social choice – and a good business decision.
