One Light Bulb at a Time.

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…..help our fellow Americans keep their jobs  and create more jobs here in the USA

We passed this on ……..  will you?
