My friend Amber sent me a picture of a Made in USA Albertson's paper grocery bag. I've also noticed the Trader Joe's bags are Made in USA. Sweet!
This paper bag find also reminded me that a great short cut to finding Made in USA clothing is to look for the paper-like label. Brian first noticed this, and the material is sort of like a dryer sheet, but thicker, and it's the label where you find laundry care instructions and country of manufacturing (hopefully America!). For some reason, it seems that almost every time I stumble upon this type of label, the garment is Made in USA. So really, instead of looking, you can sort of feel the label and get a clue as to where it's made before having to flip over a whole shirt/dress/skirt and look like a weirdo in the store!
PS. The paper-like label does not guarantee a Made in USA product. Just a tip.
PS 2. I always look like a weirdo in the store, checking all the labels.
Hello! I'm a 30 year old gal with a liking for doing year long projects. I've done a year without any form of chocolate, a year without coffee shops, and 5 years without gum (and I LOVE chocolate, coffee shops, and gum)! A year wearing only American Made should be the hardest yet, though*.
