Made in the USA Defined
According to Consumer Reports, 80% of American shoppers say they prefer to buy goods made in the United States. But, what does the “Made in the USA” designation really mean? The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) requires that a product advertised as “Made in the USA” be “all or virtually all” made in the U.S. This means that for a product to be “Made in the USA,” all significant parts and processing that go into the product must be of U.S. origin – and the manufacturer is required to have competent and reliable evidence to back up the claim that the product is, in fact, “Made in the USA.”
At Boise Paper, our products have been manufactured in the U.S. for decades with mills in International Falls, Minnesota, and Jackson, Alabama, that employ more than 1,000 men and women in healthy and safe work environments. By choosing to manufacture in the U.S., our “Made in the USA” promise keeps jobs and dollars in local economies and delivers on a commitment to community, quality, and service.

While video conferencing is a powerful tool to bridge the location gap and connect teams virtually, the rapid increase in popularity has overshadowed audio-only calls as the best option for certain meetings.
Our shift to remote work, the increased reliance on technology, the change in our daily commute, and the growing need to maintain a solid work-life balance. With this shift came a reliance on a new set of necessary tools for the workday.
When COVID-19 disrupted the world in March 2020, everyone was forced to alter their typical routines. What initially started as a two-week lockdown turned into our “new normal;” and even when the world gets back to business post-COVID, many changes to how we work are expected to last.
