Eco gift brand receives Australian Made certification
Queensland eco brand Sow ‘n Sow has received the stamp of approval from Australian Made Campaign Limited (AMCL) to use its logo.
Just in time for Australian Made week, which commenced on 15 May and runs till 21 May, founder of Sow ‘n Sow, Michelle Brady, says the official registered and certified trademark is a ‘true mark of Aussie authenticity’.
“The Australian Made logo allows consumers to buy with confidence knowing that goods marked with the logo have been grown and manufactured locally to Australia’s high standards,” she says.
“The small decision to buy Australian-made products creates a ripple effect that positively impacts families and local communities and puts money back into the economy so that we all benefit.”
Indeed, Australian Made Week is a time to recognise and support Australia’s local makers and growers and is a great reminder about the direct economic impact buying Australian can have on the livelihoods of thousands of Australians throughout the supply chain.
Consumers and businesses are encouraged to get involved by considering the flow-on effects of their purchasing decisions and encouraging others to do so.
“When you buy Australian-made products, you’re not only purchasing a high-quality item, but you’re helping to safeguard the national economy by supporting jobs, economic development and prosperity in Australia.”
Being approved to use the logo is a huge nod to the eco giftware business, which has been producing a range of locally made sustainable gifts for over 13 years.
“Our success has only been possible with the support of a network of local value-driven suppliers, retailers, manufacturers and loyal customers who have shared our vision by helping us create our products and told our story by purchasing them,” Brady adds.
“This, in turn, has allowed us to further support our local community by increasing job opportunities within our small regional town, supporting value-aligned charities and forging long-term value-driven partnerships with local suppliers to create more high-quality Australian made products for retailers to resell.”
