LET'S LOOK FOR "MADE RIGHT HERE" WHEN WE SHOP.
“Cheap” is expensive. Purchasing decisions have power and consequences. When what we buy is made overseas, frequently by exploited people working in sweatshop conditions, we not only encourage those practices and deny our neighbors badly needed opportunity, we also tacitly go along with countries whose rules and regulations are not up to our standards as they continue to recklessly pollute the air that circles the planet. We have very little say in what happens beyond our borders, except when we speak with our pocketbooks.
