As the appetite to shop locally and support local businesses grows, we’re taking part in the first-ever Made in UK Day on Tuesday 9 March 2021.
The Made in UK Day campaign has been created by Make it British to celebrate their 10 year anniversary. UK manufacturing is currently worth £192 billion to the UK economy and employs 2.7 million people. More than 65 million people live in the UK and if everyone bought just one item made in the UK worth £20 on Made in UK Day it would be worth £1.3billion.
Beatrice Bayliss make all of our products in the heart of the UK; the Cotswolds. By purchasing from UK-made businesses like us you are helping to:
1. Lower your carbon footprint: buying products made closer to home means you can significantly reduce the number of miles something has travelled. In turn, this reduces its carbon footprint. UK-made products are often made in much smaller quantities, too.
2. Promote UK craftsmanship: when you buy a product that is made in the UK you are helping to preserve craftsmanship that has been passed down through generations.
3. Boost local economies: buying locally-made directly contributes to your local economy. Spend your money wisely and help contribute directly towards the area in which you live.
How to get involved in Made in UK Day:
You can get involved in the campaign too by pledging to buy something that is made in the UK on 9 March and share your pictures on social media using the hashtag #madeinukday
