The school holidays are upon us, and the Australian Made Campaign wants shoppers to look for the iconic Australian Made logo on all their Easter holiday purchases.
You can find the green and gold kangaroo on furniture, bakeware, gifts, camping equipment, toys, outdoor play equipment, and thousands of authentic Aussie products these holidays.
Australian Made Campaign chief executive Ben Lazzaro says, “Every dollar we spend on Australian goods has a direct impact on Australian manufacturers and growers, as well as local retailers and suppliers. It creates Aussie jobs, boosts the economy and supports the broader community. Whether you are buying items for entertaining or supplies for a holiday, look for the logo to be sure its genuinely Aussie.”
Roy Morgan research found that 80% of consumers prefer to buy Australian-made food & beverages and agricultural & gardening products, 74% would rather buy Australian child & baby care products, 68% for building & renovation materials and animal, pet & pet care products, 64% for household cleaning & laundry products, 62% for caravan, camping & outdoor living products, 60% for beauty, personal care and cosmetics. There’s a clear pattern there.
Mr Lazzaro says, “You can find an Aussie alternative in almost every consumer product category. There’s a huge selection of products certified to carry the Australian Made logo at australianmade.com.au - Australia’s largest online directory of genuine Aussie products.”
