Noodle & Boo made in the USA

Green: Noodle & Boo

Shop Noodle & Boo! 100% Natural and made in the USA.

Noodle & Boo is a skin care company for Mama and baby. The creator of Noodle & Boo,Christine Burger, wanted to help out her child who has seriously sensitive skin. In the process of wanting to help her baby she also wanted to help all children who suffer from one ailment or another. Noodle & Boocreates products that are all natural, organic when possible and free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates, PPG’s, GMO’s, dyes, triclosan, and formaldehyde donors. The products are made in recyclable/biodegradable packaging and significant portions of profits are donated to various children’s charities. Let it also be said that the items are made right here in the U.S.A.

I know you are tired of me saying it but I will say it again! It is our responsibilty to support businesses that make a point of being green as well as being American made. We can fix many a problem if we get back to manufacturing products ourselves and not importing everything. We need to be able to sustain ourselves and not have to depend so heavily on other countries to do the “dirty” work. Our laziness and selfishness has put us where we are today and businesses like Noodle & Boo can help us move passed that and get on to bigger and better things.

Noodle & Boo - giving back.

I always stress the importance of American Made products! Furniture is no exception. I know it may be difficult to find but possibly you aren’t looking in the right places. Oompa.com has Room Decor & Furniture all made in the USA! I will admit some of the items are pricey but combined with their green outlook on products I think it is worth it to spend a little extra to have environmentally safe products in your home.
We know bamboo is one of the most sustainable and environmentally sound building materials the Earth has so it is important to purchase big items such as furniture that is made from bamboo. If more people purchased furniture made from sustainable materials such as bamboo it would drive the prices down and possibly force larger companies to begin to use bamboo in their products as well.
Although sustainability is extremely important around the world even more locally I feel that purchasing American made products is just as much of our responsibility. Not enough products are made here in the USA and if we want to fix our economy we should support our workers and their products. This can only benefit all of us if we stick to our guns. You have heard about purchasing locally or being a locavore so why not when possible be a “locavore” for our country! The more we purchase products displaying MADE IN THE USA the more items can be made in the USA. It only makes sense!

New Balance Made in the USA

10% Off All New Balance Made in the USA + FREE SHIPPING! Enter USA @ checkout!

I saw this the other day on New Balance’s website and was wondering how Made in America their items really are.   I did a little investigation. This is what their website says:

Made or Assembled in American Twenty-five percent of New Balanceshoes sold in North America are produced by our US workforce using US and imported materials. When possible, we obtain materials from domestic suppliers. At times, due to availability, economic or quality reasons, there is a need to import components from foreign sources. Where the domestic value is at least 70%, we have labeled the shoe “Made in the USA.” Where it falls below 70%, we have qualified the label referencing domestic and imported materials. This determination is based in part on the Federal trade Commission’s survey of consumers.

I think they are being honest about their statement Made in America seeing as how many companies don’t tell you their percentages or make it difficult to find any information about where their items are made. New Balance’ssite makes it quick and simple to find their Made in the USA promise. If the item is less than 70% they tell you what components are American made and what aren’t. I am not saying New Balance is the greenest shoe by far but I like what they are doing. People complain that items Made in America are too expensive or of poor quality (which aggravates me to no end) but here New Balance is giving you a discount for doing the right thing and purchasing American made products. I wish more companies would run promotions like this.

I know I say this all the time but it is important for us to purchase as many Made in America products as we can. The made in America movement is back on the rise and without the support we cannot hope to have this option newly realized. We need to keep our support going for Made in America products. This item is pricey for a nightstand and although one could probably go to Ikea and get something more economical the point is that this is an American Made product and the more we purchase them the less they will cost eventually. Not all products Made in America are expensive but we must support our economy at home and this is an excellent way to do it!
