5 Benefits of Buying Australian-Made Promotional Products
Globalisation has made it easier to buy items from other countries that are far cheaper than their local counterparts. However, cheaper is not always better as importing items have serious repercussions to our economy and the environment. Australian-made items are still the best choice for your company. Here are the reasons why.
When you buy local Australian-made products, the money you spend goes back to the community and generates income for the national community. A better economy means more jobs and income for industries, which benefits local families and communities.
According to The Clean Collective, every $1 million earned by a local Australian manufacturing business provides:
- $333,900 in tax revenue
- $985,000 in added value
- $95,000 in welfare benefits saved
- 10 full-time jobs
So if everyone spends $10 more each week on local products and services, Australia would earn $4 billion each year and create 100,000 new jobs.
Guaranteed product quality
Australian-made products are manufactured to meet our range of high quality and safety standards and National Construction Codes. These standards are strictly reinforced by governing bodies to protect people’s health and well-being. With imported items, you can’t be sure of the quality since some countries don’t have strict standards as ours.
Fair treatment of workers
Australia has high standards for workplace health and safety enforced by regulation, unlike other countries. This ensures that locally made items are produced by happy workers that are treated and compensated fairly in a safe working environment.
More environmentally friendly
We have some of the world’s strictest environmental protection policies for manufacturers. You’ll be sure that when you buy local products, it has been manufactured sustainably. It also means less energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions compared to importing products from overseas.
Easier warranty and return policy
Another thing that’s hard to do when you buy imported items is cashing in on the warranty or returning the item if it’s defective. With local companies such as Brandconnect, it is easy to get in touch with us when things go wrong and we are more than happy to provide the help and service that you need without the time difference.
