  1. For those who are interested, I have found a made in USA steel vacuum,actually a line of vacuums, made by an American owned company. http://www.metrovacworld.com/ They don't sell them themselves, but this is a good place to see their entire line. I needed one with hepa bags, and found several there. I've just ordered one with Christmas money and well let you know how it well it works. For other made in USA things, you can follow the tags.
  2. I just learned of a master cabinet maker who designed a wooden building set/series after he learned that Lincoln Logs are made in China. If you're interested, here is the link. http://www.timberworkstoys.com/ If you search the made in USA tag, you'll find other threads on made in the USA things for those Americans who prefer to buy things made in the USA when possible.
  3. Yesterday I found some things made in the USA from recycled plastic. A broom by Casabella (Ecipse) and some plastic plates & cutlery (aka flatware) by Preserve. The broom has a detachable handle and you can buy other accessories to turn it into a mop etc, so that you only need one handle. The handle is metal, but other parts are made from recycled soda bottles & it has the official green logo. Now I just need to find the mop head to go with it for days when I'm in a hurry. Usually I hand wash floors.
  4. For those of you who live in the States and like to buy made in the USA, here is a page with links to American made camping gear. http://www.stillmadeinusa.com/sportinggoods.html#CampingGear We recently bought my eldest dd a sleeping bag from Wiggy's, which is one of the links. She hasn't used it yet, but it looks well made & comes with a pillow & a stuff sack. There are other bags made here, too, and other gear. Happy camping!
  5. affect handmade toys made in the US. Toymakers will have to pay huge costs to have toys tested and small businesses can't afford the costs. Here's the article: http://www.myembarq.com/news/read.php?id=16681996&ps=1014&cat=&cps=0&lang=en I saw something about it in an email from the homeschoolers' who own Hands and Hearts. They make some great hands on history kits. Anyhow, just wanted to pass it on.
  6. Since people are shopping for practical gifts as well as toys, here are some things I've discovered made here. SolarEclipse (one word!) makes all of their UV clothing in the US (I called to confirm this, left a message on the weekend, and they called me back!) Avalon Organics makes all their products in the USA or Canada (at least all the ones I've looked at so far.) Recycline makes their stuff here, so your supporting a cleaner environment along with American workers, etc. Nexcare, owned by 3M, makes their bandages, gauzes, tapes, etc here in the US (at least every product I've seen in the stores so far--always check labels). Johnson & Johnson does NOT make theirs here, and neither does the other major brand. Scotch tape is all made here (also 3M) Irish Sring soap is made here & it's an American owned company. There are many other products but I've never had the time to write a big list. I'll do it a bit at a time, and I'm tagging the lists "made in USA" so if you follow the tag now you'll also find American made toys. I also hope to do the same for Canadians (I'm dual).
  7. Here are a few links with some helpful information on finding toys made in the USA. The firs is a list followed by some links; the second is links with some helpful info; the third is a vendor I've bought other things from and found companies that way (they don't list the companies but often the stuff comes directly from the source, and I've found some great companies for things like backpacks, garden tools, etc.) http://www.howtobuyamerican.com/content/ba-toys.shtml http://www.stillmadeinusa.com/toysngames.html http://www.buyamericanmart.com/toysgames.html One of these days I hope to do a school supply thread on this, because there are many things made here, including pens, pencils, notebooks, clipboards, etc, etc. Still haven't found a ruler lately, though, but I haven't given up.
  8. I was considering buying the “American Girl” doll for my dd6 after seeing all the high praise from people on this forum (my dd is not a “doll” girl but I want to get her a nice one that maybe she will love). I was reading a thread here yesterday where someone posted an article stating that the A.G. doll is now made in China. The company claims it cannot afford to manufacture in the U.S. I’m really bummed, because for me, this does factor into my decision. I’m not advocating a boycott of Made in China here, but I am personally becoming increasingly adverse to buying or using anything made in China for the sake of safety of my family. The words Made in China for me have taken on the meaning of "Warning". I’ve not spent any time formally researching this, but here are just the few thoughts that come to my mind which are strongly influencing me: -Recent recalls on MIC toys sold in U.S. which contain lead paint - Recent news on “melamine” in Chinese baby formula (a chemical responsible for killing several babies in China and sickening thousands more). I’m not informed enough on this but I do NOT believe this was sold in the U.S. - Recent recalls and/or warnings on infant toys, teething toys, nursing bottles and sippy cups, sold in the U.S. containing melamine - Recent recall (October 2008) on Sherwood Brands Pirate’s milk chocolate coins, MIC and sold across the U.S. and Canada (check your Halloween candy) by Costco and various dollar and bulk stores for containing melamine. www.snopes.com/food/warnings/coins.asp - There are other comments/concerns I could share regarding quality vs. safety. For instance when I researched buying a new camera, I found many professional camera reviews suggesting to only buy "made in Japan" because MIC were inferior in quality of parts and manufacturing regulations. But these issues are much secondary to the safety/health concerns, especially with products for my kids. I was just curious what you all think.
  9. A friend of mine sent me to a link with a documentary about WalMart called "The High Cost of Low Price". Maybe I live under a rock but I had never heard of it before and I CRIED MY EYES OUT while watching it. It made me want to go out and burn down all the Walmarts!!! Only one problem...dh is a manager at Walmart and they might frown on that. I am not naive. Deep down I knew that all that nasty stuff was true, I just tried really hard not to think about it. Now that I am thinking about it, I am really bugged by the fact that dh works in a company like that. I have this somewhat irrational desire for him to quit on principal (not that Walmart would care). But here's the problem...how many companies out there are NOT like Walmart? I've read all the nasty stuff about Target (one of my favorite stores) and about sweatshops and all the outsourcing this country does, etc. But what we are supposed to do? My convictions tell me to take a stand but the economy and my wallet say "go to Walmart, it's cheaper". I heard a commercial for some stock broker company that can take a look at your investments and tell you which ones are contributing to causes you don't believe in. I don't think I want to know. By the time I get done cutting out of my life all the companies who treat their employees badly, make them live off poverty wages, and give money to causes I am against, I'll be living naked in a box somewhere. What's a girl to do? How do you all handle this?
