We've just decided to be a member of the Made in America Movement.  On their website, http://www.themadeinamericamovement.com, they have a list of companies that manufacture products in the USA.  As a small family business, we think this is a very important cause and are going to try and purchase products made in the USA whenever possible.  I know it isn't easy, sometimes just finding products can be most of the battle.  But when you find them the next hurdle is the PRICE TAG.  We all love a bargain but eventually I believe we will have to decide for ourselves "What Is More Important?"

It seems amazing to us at Snoedels that a product can be made overseas then shipped here to the US and still be less that half the price of a product made here in America.   I guess we need to remember who's livelihoods we are supporting, ours or theirs.

I read this on another site today, "There are approximately 250 million adult Americans, if each of them would simply redirect just $100 dollars of their normal yearly budget towards USA made goods, together we would add $25,000,000,000 Billion extra dollars to our economy. We're not asking anyone to spend more, just redirect some of what you are spending to American made goods."

I never thought of it this way before, doesn't seem to much to ask of us!
