Happy Birthday, U.S.A.!
By Adrea P., Startup America Communications Intern, @startupamerica
Do you ever wonder why Adams, Franklin, and Jefferson are called the Founding Fathers? Some may say America is the best startup in the world…Startups across America: sport your best red, white, and blue, and get ready to barbeque! The Fourth of July is nearly here, and Startup America members know how to help you make the most of it—even if it is on a Wednesday.
Start your celebration with all things American from OhSay USA. Find accessories for your garden or home, toys, electronics, and more—all manufactured in the great United States. Order American flags for some Fourth of July swag,and even get a few deluxe lawn flamingos to warm up the lawn! Want your startup to produce American-made goods? Partner with Made in USA Certified to ensure that your product originates here in the United States.
Everyone deserves a good burger on the Fourth of July—even vegetarians.This summer The Hot Dang will replace juicy beef. Try the whole grain, all natural, fiber rich, soy free, delicious burger, and you won’t be disappointed. Startup America member USA Love List will share more ways to have an earth-friendly cookout using only products made in the U.S.A.
After a delicious and environmentally friendly barbeque, head to the beach to catch some waves! Don’t let your dog miss out on the festivities. Bring Rover or Spot along, but don’t forget the PoopPac, a new way to manage dog waste. Whether you are on the beach or in the yard, you can keep the area clean and keep your hands free. Lug your American-made goods in a bag from Startup America member Project Repat. Project Repat turns textile waste into job opportunities in the United States by taking old t-shirts and transforming them into stylish products such as ties, blankets, scarves, and bags. Miscalculate your t-shirt order? Send excess tees to Project Repat, and in two to three weeks you will receive the product of your choice.
Time flies when you’re having fun, and before you know it the fireworks will be cracking and popping in the sky. Chances are you will have work in the morning, so keep track of time with an American themed Modify Watch. When the fourth is over, change the color of the watchstrap to keep things interesting! With a Modify Watch, you will never get bored.
Startup America members know how to make this Fourth of July the best yet!
