Everything is Made in #China - That's the Truth!


Everything is Made in #China - That's the Truth!

I was Facebooking that time when this shows up on my news feed. I had a laughed because it was speaking for the truth here in the United States. When I first arrived in 2006, I was so excited to shop but right then, I was disappointed because everything that I found at any stores is made in China, India, Korea and other Asian/foreign countries but majority are made in China!

So, what is your say about things being manufactured from China and from other countries? My own say here is that " the quality is poor" back then, whenever some of our relatives sent something from the USA and made in USA, it really last longer and the quality was very noticeable.

I buy things made in the USA whenever I can. Not even for the quality, but to keep jobs here!

I am really sad that it is getting harder and harder to find "made in america" products. The hard reality is that they can be created so much cheaper in other countries, so the prices are lower on foreign items. Thus more people buy them and the Made IN USA products are losing out. But I do love MADE IN USA products. They have a great quality.

In one of my college classes a classmate did an experiment. He had everyone check their tags on their shirts. 20 of 22 were not made in the USA.

I seek out products that are Made in the USA because it helps to keep jobs in our country. With so many people struggling and out of work, it doesn't seem right to buy from other countries.

Haha! We try to buy as much stuff as possible that is made in the USA. Sometimes its hard to find products made in the US, but it usually can be done. And if it can't - then sometime we just go without it.

I try to buy things made in the USA whenever possible. IF they are local to my area, even better.

I admit it i never pay attention to tags other then size.

I always try and buy things that are made in the UK before anywhere else - just as I like supporting home makers. x

I hate to say it but with the economy so bad at the moment, I usually go for both price and quality. I wish times were better so I can support USA products but not at this time. :(

Aisha Kristine Chong said...

Lol I had no idea that even in US a lot of things are still made in china lol!

Melanie Burbage said...

LOL funny.
Actually what people should be doing is buy local as possibly, food, items, and so on. Your local small business will boost your local area. Buying outside, whether area, state and then country, it's hurting us more. It's just too easy and cheaper to do it the other way around so that's why it's done. Twisted reality honestly

It is so hard to find things that are made in America. They do cost a bit more but they are worth it because they usually last a lot longer. The quality of products have gone down so much and I think it is due to the outsourcing of our manufacturing. Great we are helping other countries but we need to help home first.

Pam said...

What a cute little graphic.

I try and support manufactures in the US. It is important to keep jobs here in the US.

I will buy goods from other countries too.

Sad but true.
The good thing is we have choices. I choose whenever I can USA products to support the economy and keep the land of opportunity with some here

That is pretty funny! I do try to buy U.S. made products as much as possible

Marni Mutrux said...

This is why I like to shop at places like Etsy.com. That way I know it was handmade and I'm supporting local businesses. The quality shows!

^^^ what she said.

It's harder to find things made in the US, but worth the look. :)

Jennifer Zimmerman said...

I try to buy things made here as well. I remember when I saw that going around Facebook - I think I spit soda all over the screen from laughing!

Ashley Gill said...

This is a part of the world that I know I try to keep buying things from the US. We need jobs, even if the product is going to cost a little more.

Mel Cole said...

I weigh price sometimes but would prefer good quality in shopping. Sometimes, the made in USA are cheap which you can find in the thrift stores and still in good condition.

Toni Patton said...

I LOL at that picture and grossed my son out at the same time LOL> We try to buy uSA made goodies.

Amy said...

I try to purchase USA made products -just to help keep our country afloat. But it does seem to be getting harder and harder to find...

The Lucky Wife said...

I agree with you and I really wish more consumers would support Made in the USA products and companies more.
