Products made in America have an inherent advantage in environmental conservation. Products made locally require less energy to ship shorter distances, require less packaging and are made under EPA restrictions. These are a few of my favorite green products from American companies that go above and beyond in their sustainability efforts. From using recycled products to using eco-friendly packaging, each is a gift that shows you care about our planet.
