Every year, we celebrate the birthday of a country founded on freedom and democracy. As an American-Made company, Trayvax was founded with the same guiding principles. Since our inception, Trayvax has pursued the dream ofcreating 5,000 American jobs. It’s a lofty goal, but so was the creation of the country we celebrate together this week and beyond.

Trayvax: 4th of July

In pursuit of this dream, Trayvax has committed to exclusively creating American-made products. Why is “Made in the USA” so important to usand why should it be important to you, too?

  • You’re creating American jobs.The manufacturing industry has taken some of the heaviest hits as companies continue to ship jobs overseas. By supporting products made in the USA, you’re breathing life into the U.S. manufacturing industry, creating thousands of jobs and discouraging American dependence on imported goods.
  • You’re supporting American families.Jobs outsourced overseas rarely return to American soil, a reality that hits American families directly. Not only does buying American-made products create more U.S. jobs for families in the short-term, but money spent on American-made products is channeled back into local businesses and communities, helping American families thrive. As jobs increase in the manufacturing sector, it increases the demand for careers in administration, human resources, sales, and much more.
  • You’re helping keep America beautiful. Manufacturers that operate outside the U.S. often do so because they can profit off lax regulations in foreign countries. While American companies are subject to environmental regulation, factories overseas create more pollution and waste than domestic manufacturers on average. Choosing American-made products means investing in our beautiful country and all its natural resources.
  • You’re supporting American ideals. Buying American-made products means upholding the labor protections we offer our citizens, including minimum wage requirements, work safety regulations, and child labor laws. Supporting brands “Made in the USA” prevents abuses of power and human rights violations abroad.

Supporting American-made products is more than a show of patriotism; it’s a commitment to the ideals that make our country great. Trayvax is dedicated to making quality American products you can feel proud to support this Fourth of July. If you haven’t already, check out our limited editionOld Glory Element!

Living the Van Life: Cooking a Meal Outside

Returning to our natural roots as humans comes with a serene feeling only Mother Nature can provide. Getting away from it all. Last week we did just that with Chad Derosa from Living The Van LifeNaturally we escaped to Pacific Northwest’s beautiful North Cascade mountains, a short drive from the Trayvax warehouse in Bellingham.

Cooking a meal outside can be quick and easy. Whether it is the backyard campout, one night camping escape to fully living off the grid we all have something to gain from sitting around hot coals cooking food as our ancestors did.
