The Difficulties of Finding American Made Products#BornInTheUsa!

The Difficulties of Finding American Made Products#BornInTheUsa!

Like the song—which is quite obviously the tale of a broken system and of a government that sees its citizens as disposable cogs in a war machine, I am in no means in favor of American Made Products because I am a Republican. I am in favor of American Made Products because even though the American Government has been caught lying to the people, it is still the most trusted way I have of making sure the products I am selling are NOT hurting the environment or underage children.

I am more concerned about an ocean full of trash like in the video above, than I am a patriot. I want to make sure the businesses I am supporting with my money are not contributing to the dumping of trash into the ocean or paying kids $.50 a day to sew t-shirts, so some huge company can make 5 billion in profit rather than 3 billion in profit.

Clearly America is not perfect.  We pollute and damage the environment as well.  I believe we do it less than other places.  I live in California which in many people's opinion is over regulated, I feel those regulations help protect the oceans and people.

I am having a heck of a time  finding products made in the USA. I found a list which I have copied below that tells of a BUNCH OF companies that make things in the good 'ol USA.

Clothing

Jeans & denim

Shoes & footwear

Beauty and personal care

Furniture, cookware and home

Handbags and accessories

Furniture 

Electronics

Tools

Other

The list was compiled in 2016 and it does not take into consideration the sale of American Apparel.

I was so excited when I found the following video (CLICK HERE) from Bella+Canvas ...cool I thought I found a replacement for American Apparel. These shirts are made in the USA and California!  But then when the shirts arrived the labels said Bangladesh and Nicaragua.....UGH! I contacted my printers and asked them how come and they referred me to the manufacturer to find out which t-shirts are made in the LA Factory. WHY DON'T THEY MAKE ALL OF THEM AT THE LA FACTORY? The do have a collection of made in the USA and I am trying to get my printers on the ball! Hopefully any day now!

At this point in time the printers I work with only sell one brand of shirt in which I am 100% positive are made in the USA and that is LA Apparel.  Again a brand I love!  Why?  Because it is run by the person who started American Apparel! Dov Charney, he is a total rebel and I love that about him.  

Everything I share is printed in the USA!  All the T-shirts I sell are made in the USA except for 2 at this time and I will be changing that very soon.  The two that are not made in the USA are the V-necked Mantra T and the Women's Bella+Canvas California T-shirt.

Another one of my hopes as a Port Hueneme based business is to help the people of the City of Port Hueneme, that is why I have started my Free Resource Library.  I am currently filling it up with information I hope people here will find useful.
