Buy American Made Products

Let’s All Do This ….A Great idea!!

In our current economic situation, every little thing we buy or do   … affects someone

else and perhaps even their job. So, after reading this email, I think it   is on the right track. Let’s all do it!! “My grandson likes Hershey’s candy.  It is all marked made in Mexico now.  I do not buy  it any more.


My favorite toothpaste Colgate is made in Mexico now, so I have switched to Crest….USA.     You have to read the labels on everything. This past weekend I was in Kroger Grocery store. I needed 6 light bulbs and Bounce dryer sheets. I was in the light bulb aisle and  right next to the GE brand that I usually buy, there was an off brand

labeled, “Everyday Value.” I picked up both   types of bulbs and compared the stats – they were the same except for the price.    The GE bulbs cost more money than

the Everyday Value brand but the thing that  surprised me the most was the fact that GE was made in MEXICO and the Everyday  Value brand was made in the USA by a company   in Cleveland , Ohio!


On to another aisle – Bounce Dryer Sheets….you guessed it, Bounce cost more money and is made in Canada . The Everyday Value brand was less money and MADE IN THE USA! I did laundry yesterday and the dryer sheets performed

 exactly like the Bounce Free   I have been using for years and at almost half

the price! So my challenge to you is to start reading the labels when you shop for everyday things and see what you can find that is made in t he USA – the job you save may be your own or your neighbors! If you accept the challenge, pass this on to others so we can all start buying American, one light bulb at a time!


Stop buying from China, Mexico, Venezuela  ……….. (We should have done this a decade ago……) Let’s get with the  program… help our fellow Americans keep their jobs and create more jobs right here in the U.S.A. !!!  God Bless America!! “
