Watch It Made in the U.S.A.: A Visitor’s Guide to the Best Factory Tours and Company Museums

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.  Watch It Made in the U.S.A.: A Visitor’s Guide to the Best Factory Tours and Company Museums gives you information for over 300 products made right here in the USA. Maybe this summer plan some trips with your family to discover what items you might be using everyday that are made right here at home.

Product Description:
Have you ever wondered how toothpaste gets into the tube? How stripes get on a candy cane? More than just a travel guide, Watch It Made in the U.S.A. helps you experience firsthand the products, companies, technology, and workers that fuel our economy, from Ben and Jerry’s to Harley-Davidson. Whether you’re curious about potato chips or computer chips, cars or crayons, you can count on authors and factory-tour experts Karen Axelrod and Bruce Brumberg to help you and your family discover information about more than 300 ordinary and extraordinary products most of us take for granted.

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.
