Its no secret, we don't have to BS around it. there's no kidding anyone, seriously, its totally OK......If you're reading this blog, you're probably not part of the 1% that controls 90% of the wealth of this country or world. its fine. I'm cool with it if you are though. For me, I've thought very differently about consuming for a while now and when I can, I try to buy American. No, its not easy, Apple doesn't make a computer here, I'm also not a hypocrite, so I know that I buy things made in China. I work for a company that makes 95% of its products here in the USA. Almost 70% in NYC, Rhode Island and New Jersey. This is a personal choice that I'm proud of.
Here are a few things/brands/companies that are proud of it as well. And some don't even let you know up front.

Obviously, I can go on and on, and that's not what I'm trying to do. All I'm saying is that I like to take the time to take a step back and if there 'might' be an option to go made in your home country, I try to do it. If it turns out the final cost of the product is just too much (because you know the labor cost is more, this shouldn't be a secret) then pass, and get something else. Note, I did not say YOU should do this. this is just how I approach things. And I thought I'd pass it along, that's all.
happy holidays. Happy Chanukah today. word up. more tomorrow......
