The Standard Journal - - LOCAL - From staff re­ports

The “Buy From Ge­or­gia” move­ment is sweep­ing across the state in July to high­light con­sumer-based goods that can be pur­chased in a store or on Ama­zon.

Stud­ies show the av­er­age con­sumer can­not name three prod­ucts man­u­fac­tured in their state, and the Ge­or­gia Man­u­fac­tur­ing Al­liance is on a mis­sion to ed­u­cate peo­ple about what is made in their com­mu­nity and the im­pact those prod­ucts have on their lo­cal econ­omy.

“We can and will be the leader of this man­u­fac­tur­ing re­nais­sance by sup­port­ing the “Buy From Ge­or­gia” move­ment. This pro­gram helps peo­ple be­come aware of how they make a dif­fer­ence by buy­ing lo­cally made goods,” Ja­son Moss, CEO of the Ge­or­gia Man­u­fac­tur­ing Al­liance, said.

The Ge­or­gia Man­u­fac­tur­ing Al­liance in­vites con­sumers to tag along as they travel across WKH VWDWH KLJKOLJKWLQJ PDQXIDFWXULQJ fa­cil­i­ties in July. To learn more about th­ese tours and to reg­is­ter, please visit: www. Ge­or­giaMan­u­fac­tur­ingAl­liance.com
