One Light Bulb at a Time

I haven’t personally checked the accuracy of each statement and have no clue where the nearest Kroger’s is but this seems like a good way to begin the new year.   Just a thought.

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 Lowes 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 and help our fellow Americans keep their jobs and create more jobs here in the USA.
I passed this on …….. will you ???????

I loved the sentiment here..  I would add to this that there really isn’t any reason to buy dryer sheets, and they are chemical laden…just dry your clothes til they are just dry, or use the clothesline…no cost, and no boxes or disposable stuff to throe away.
