Reading The Week yesterday, I noticed this comic in the centerfold, and I couldn't help feel a pang of truth. I totally see "Made in Bangladesh" tags at every store I go into. Aside from China, most labels I ever see are from Cambodia or Bangladesh.
I didn't know exactly where Bangladesh, so just I learned it's right next door to India. Also, according to Wikipedia, 48% of the population lives below the poverty line, and in a state of malnutrition. Yikes.
On a brighter note, Amber found a nice pack of hamster treats at Petco, Made in USA. Yippee! Thank you Amber!
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*.
