I don’t know about you but when I am trying to look for products made in the USA I have a difficult time finding many things. It really disappoints me that we can’t have done more with our country than learning how to export to other countries that cost less but maintain better quality. That sounds silly to me. There was once a time when everyone wanted American made products, what happened to that? I think it is very possible that we can return to a time where our products are respected and in international demand.
One way to get back there is to go visit businesses that manufacturer products right here in the United States. The book Watch It Made in the U.S.A.: A Visitor’s Guide to the Best Factory Tours and Company Museums
is an excellent resource to find and visit American manufacturers and watch exactly what they do. This may inspire you to continue purchasing American products or even entice you to make your own American made products.
