MADE IN THE USA ~revised again

I have another wonderful company to add to this MADE IN USA list, WeatherTech is playing their add during the super bowl for 2015 so if you missed it, here it is today, just before the superbowl airs it.

This blog has been updated promoting what a  wonderful country we are that still make stuff in our country! If you know of other’s please comment here so those who might want to know of another great business to support can find it too.

Many of the people I know helped to give me this list. I am not that knowledgeable of all the Made in USA places. I did search many of the sites & was sure to link it if I liked what I saw believing other’s would like to know it as well.

I cannot vouch for all the sites. There are so many~ so who would have guessed! We are still geniuses, or creative & know how to market. We can beat this foreign reliance if we want to.

I fear however, that many will see the “cost” of some items & think, heck, I can go to blank Mart & get it cheaper~ but friend, remember, we are trying to stop this trend, or you would not be reading this. Yes, it does cost more if it is made in the USA, because it is the reality of it all. It costs to make stuff. Did you know that much of the items not made in the USA are done with slave labor? That means, the top guys make all the profit! The workers are not treated well & many are forced to do the work for pennies! That is not an understatement. This is why we must get back to buying local~ to keep our own country from going the way of foreign reliance & to keep the slave labor from destroying other countries. If we don’t buy, they don’t need workers~ It’s up to US~

So, here is the “incomplete” detailed list~

I have clicked on all these sites below, or have purchased some of the items from them to have recommended them here, but there will certainly be the one that slips thru that I did not check. Do your homework & enjoy shopping! Keep this for future reference~

Locally we have a business that sells local crafter’s items. Look to your town to find these as well. Or, start your own store…we live in a college town & that helps as they often have crafts to make & sell. But certainly not required. Just let others know so you have a great business. Better yet, comment here & post it for other’s to read all about it~ periodically I will add the new ones you send me to this list. Keep them coming~

http://cuppow.com/ Cuppow is manufactured in Minneapolis from BPA-free polypropylene, which Resnikoff says doesn’t stain or deform at boiling temperatures. “In theory, it’s reusable indefinitely,” he tells Co.Design, but it’s also recyclable. The packaging was designed by Natalya Zahn and is printed by hand by Repeat Press, in Somerville, Massachusetts. “We’re striving to keep our product 100% made in the U.S.A.,” Resnikoff says, “employing people who hold their work to high standards.” (Safety tip: Because a glass cup isn’t known for its insulating properties, when filling your jar with piping-hot liquids, you may want to consider using a cozy.)
