Whether this particular subject on light bulbs is true or not, the concept of buying in the USA is! Just like buying in your own town or county, instead of going elsewhere, we should all consider buying products made in the good Ole’ USA!!!
Subject: One Light Bulb at a Time-STAY IN THE USA
A physics teacher in high school, once told the students that while one
grasshopper on the railroad tracks wouldn’t slow a train very much, a
billion of them would. With that thought in mind, read the following,
obviously written by a good American ..
Good idea .. . . one light bulb at a time . . . ..
Check this out . I can verify this because I was in Lowe’s the other
day for some reason and just for the heck of it I was looking at the
hose attachments .. They were all made in China . The next day I was in
Ace Hardware and just for the heck of it I checked the hose attachments
there. They were made in USA . Start looking …
In our current economic situation, every little thing we buy or do
affects someone else – even their job … So, after reading this email,
I think this lady is on the right track . Let’s get behind her!
My grandson likes Hershey’s candy. I noticed, though, that it is
marked made in Mexico now. I do not buy it any more.
My favorite toothpaste, Colgate is made in Mexico…. now I have
switched to Crest. You have to read the labels on everything…
This past weekend, I was at Kroger.. I needed 60 W light bulbs and
Bounce dryer sheets. I was in the light bulb aisle, and right next to
the GE brand I normally buy 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 were 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 – get ready for this – the USA in a
company in Cleveland, Ohio.
So throw out the myth that you cannot find products you use every day
that are made right here ..
So on to another aisle – Bounce Dryer Sheets …. yep, 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 just like the Bounce Free I have been using for
years and at almost half the price!
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 the USA – the
job you save may be your own or your neighbors!
If you accept the challenge, pass this on to others in your address
book so we can all start buying American, one light bulb at a time! Stop
buying from overseas companies!
(We should have awakened a decade ago .. .. .. . . . )
Let’s get with the program and help our fellow Americans keep their
jobs and create more jobs here in the USA.
