USA Made with <3
Posted on April 28 2020
Our mandate to operate a socially responsible company has always lead Betty Be Good to seek first USA & Canadian made products where possible. We have created a Made In The USA section on our website to show our shoppers how they can influence manufacturing with their buying.
Our commitment to anti-human trafficking initiatives make this a natural bent for our buyers as we attempt to avoid manufacturing practices that put people at risk for labor trafficking. While we cannot be 100% certain a garment is made responsibly, by purchasing US made we have a better expectancy of fair trade goods and we invest in our economy for the future.
We estimate that roughly 30-50% of each collection will be manufactured in the US or Canada. This estimate is a flex based on availability. We favor suppliers that manufacture and we seek out more each time we start a new collection. All styles are designed and innovated in the USA.
We love the innovations from our USA designers most of them based in the Los Angeles area. These multi generational design & manufacturing companies have a long history that spans at least two generations as the proprietor will usually encourage their children to follow in their footsteps and join the family business in fashion. This breathes fresh life into a business that requires unique ideas to stay alive in a fast paced industry.
What this means for you as a shopper is that you are supporting the North American economy, but also if you are shopping from Canada you will avoid duties and brokerage fees. Recently, during the Covid quarantine our business was met with some unfortunate set backs with duties and taxes on orders bound for Canada. We responded by sharing these fees with our shoppers and we have made commitments to help our Canadian shoppers buy USA made to avoid these unfair duty/fee outcomes. While taxes may still apply; taxes are a certain as death they say! We know that shipping with Betty via USPS/Canada Post with all USA made goods will not incur brokerage and duty fees.
All styles in our Made In The USA collection are made in the US or Canada. Please inquire if you have questions about any of the styles shown here.Shop the Made In The USA collection here: https://shopbettybegood.com/collections/made-in-the-usa
