Countries of Origin on Tags in a Major Big Box Store Today.

...at least the ones I read before I became disgusted and left:

  • Thailand
  • China
  • Vietnam
  • El Salvador
  • Turkmenistan
  • Indonesia
  • Sri Lanka
  • Lesotho
Tags that read "Made in the USA": None.

Go check out the Church of Stop Shopping, and see the movie What Would Jesus Buy?. It will do you ( and us) good.

And if you really NEED stuff, you can google "made in USA", and can find some stuff to buy made by your neighbors, whose bosses pay taxes, social security, and living wages. THAT's the way to be patriotic, if you ask me.

so i just read "A Year w/out Made in China" (and Animal, Vegetable, Miracle...which is a year of eating locally). I might blog abou tthem soon. I actually didn't like the first one that much (didn't think it was that well done). But it made the same point you have here in your blog.

ugh.

i've started noticing a lot more lately nad it does NOT put one in a happy mood
