Made In Australia: How Local Shopping Helps Everyone
The COVID-19 pandemic brought about financial difficulties across many sectors and many countries. Australia may now be recovering, but some companies have been less able to bounce back compared to others in the months since, and it is now more important than ever to shop locally for your needs.

What difference does it make?

If people continue to support local-made products, the Australian economy can and will bounce back better, creating more jobs in the process. Buying local directly helps your business-owning neighbour stay afloat, and there have been plenty of small companies across the country that have dissolved over the past year, so they might just need it.

How much does it cost?

This route might be a bit more expensive whether you’re after food, furniture, or clothing, but that’s because local products don’t cut corners. You’ll know that local goods cooperate with Australia’s health and safety standards, rather than America’s, or England’s. A few extra dollars is a small price to pay for the knowledge that you’re helping your community at a time like this.

Who does it benefit?

Everyone benefits from local products; you’re not just treating yourself, you’re treating those who need your support. You can get a quality product, and they can get a quality customer. Helping to boost the economy in your area can also provide people with more local jobs in manufacturing and supplying those goods, while the manufacturing process itself can be far more efficient than it would be overseas.

How can I help?

At the Platinum Health Supply Group, we’ve developed our own cleaning and disinfection products under the SafeGuard+ brand, because Australian-made is best for us all. Platinum also ensures that everything is sourced ethically, delivering a hospital-grade product that gets the job done sustainably and effectively.
