Use Your Green to BuyBlue this Holiday Season

Dear Ethical Consumer,

As we’re thinking about our loved ones and what to get them this Holiday Season, let’s give a little extra thought to the people impacted by the chain of production. Do your holiday gift purchases help the economy by protecting American jobs?

BuyBlue offers some simple tips on how to be an Ethical Consumer this December:

  • Avoid non-union grocery stores for your meal prep. Buy your food from a union market.
  • Don’t use self check out, no matter how rushed you are. Every self check out represents several lost jobs. Let the manager know on your way out that you took the time to avoid the self check out and why.
  • Make a commitment to go out of your way to buy at least one gift known to be made in America.
  • When writing checks to your favorite charities before the end of the year, consider donating to the Labor 411 Foundation. Help us educate consumers about the power of their wallets.

Be the change you want to see in the world by being mindful about how you spend your money while you shop this Holiday Season. #BuyBlue.
