Walmart

I had to do a double take when I read this line from an article in USA TODAY printed today:

Now Wal-Mart wants a piece of the action. The behemoth, embroiled over the past year with worker protests and foreign bribery investigations, pledged recently to source $50 billion of products in the U.S. over the next 10 years, says Wal-Mart spokesman Randy Hargrove. They’re not alone. Mendoza says both Caterpillar and 3M have also made efforts to source more in the U.S.

To say this news overjoyed me, is an understatement! Finally, the changes I had hoped to see when I started this blog 3 years ago have come to fruition. We still have alot of work to do to restore Made in USA to its former prominence but it looks like we are heading in a great direction which will restore millions of American jobs in manufacturing. Still, I never thought it would happen so quickly.!

    Thank you for supporting American goods! We were wondering if you would do a post on an American-made line of t-shirts and hooded sweatshirts we will be launching soon at Gooder Labs, LLC?

    Hi there, Poking around your blog and just wanted to let you know that I am a like-minded shopper and have not bought anything made in China for over a year. I have a blog too where I photograph my outfits, all American-made, at http://mrsamericanmade.tumblr.com/ and I also put up photos of others in American made outfits. Let me know if you would like to share a photo! : ) Ana
