A few days ago, I got an email from someone about a book they had written (or helped publish...I'm a little fuzzy on the details) called The Polaris Effect. Today I checked it out, and they have a great site with all types of postings about American made products, as well as a link to buy the book. It looks like a good read about how to bring American jobs back. It says that 66,486 manufacturing companies have shut down within the last 10 years. That's a LOT! I'm going to read the book, and hope that one day I can help solve the problem (in addition to this project!).
Here's their link: http://thepolariseffect.com/?post_type=product
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*.
