Did you know that each pigskin thrown in the NFL is made in America? Well, you do now, as Wilson is the National Football League’s official supplier. The company’s facility is situated in Ada, Ohio, and that’s where 4,000 leather footballs are made every day! And to think, each football comes with a pump and a Tee…
It was important for Wilson to maintain the production in the United States. NFL is all American, and American is all NFL. No other nation in the world sees football as Americans do, so producing the balls on a different land is out of the question.
Made in the USA: Tom’s of Maine Toothpaste

Tom's of Maine antiplaque and whitening toothpaste is a good option if you prefer to avoid fluoride. With all-natural ingredients, they are a safe bet for kids who are learning to brush or need a little more convincing as they also come in a variety of flavors.
Made in the USA: Weber Grills
The Weber grill's iconic rounded shape hasn't changed much since it was first designed in 1952, but that has also kept it recognizable and a regular feature at many outdoor barbeques and cookouts. In the 21st century, the word Weber has become a synonym for the word grill, and it is associated with quality and reliability and sits comfortably on the top of the range shelf.
All the famous Weber grills (except their gas models, which are made overseas) are manufactured at the company's headquarters in Palatine, Illinois, so it's only good is also all American. A great purchase for the 4th of July.
Made in the USA: Chesapeake Bay Candles
Chesapeake Bay Candle factory makes more than a half-million scented candles every month, which are then sold at popular retail stores such as Target, as well as on Amazon. But they are no longer made in Maryland, as recently 125 workers were laid off there so Newell Brands, the company's owner since 2017, could move production to Whatley, Massachusetts — at least they are still made in America.
Candles can be found almost anywhere; however, not all candles you find are particularly good. Chesapeake Bay could easily move its production plant to a much cheaper location, however, it could have put the quality of the candles at risk.
Made in the USA: Green Toys
Green Toys has made its toys using more than 80 million recycled milk jugs. Their toys are fashioned to meet very strict standards for safety as well as sustainability, and that includes their packaging. The company relies on a local, all-American supply chain which also reduces energy usage, all this makes Green Toys a top seller when it comes to eco-friendly children's toys, offering sorting sets and miniature toy vehicles that will only set you back around $30.
Green Toys not only look after the planet, but they create beautiful toys while keeping their manufacturing plant inland. This is for sure as good as it gets.
