You should be able to see where the things you shop online come from. To us that seems incredibly obvious, but in practice it’s not. We started building Buy Localized in November 2019, over concerns of where our products are coming from.
We are, and we were, unhappy with how China was acting on the world stage, and didn’t want any of our money going there. It seemed ridiculous that if we didn’t want to buy Chinese goods we had to search everything we wanted to buy, we decided there had to be a better way. We started working on this and released our first version in February. We are thrilled that people are using it and that we are helping people have more control over how they spend their money.
