 Your view on American Made?:  Take the survey and let us know!            https://goo.gl/mm3NWA

Did you know that a cargo ship from China emits about 50 million cars worth of CO2? http://www.enfos.com/blog/2015/06/23/behemoths-of-emission-how-a-container-ship-can-out-pollute-50-million-cars/

WE CAN'T DO IT WITHOUT YOU THOUGH!  WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!

Don't you DESERVE TO KNOW?   Please complete and pass around this American Survey about Manufacturing in the USA.

Risks and challenges

Risks and Challenges:

There can be several risks: Forcing a mandate for certification will likely be met with resistance by factories and retailers. However, the consumers have the right to know and together we can demand transparency in manufacturing, as we do in all other business. We can give a grace period for certification. The timing of getting products, getting companies certified in a timely manner will be a lot of work. Staffing for the verification process could also be an issue. Although, that would create jobs. We have worked to automate as much as possible with forms, online access for factories, mobile notary public for those hard to reach factories, and more.

It will take more to get the message out that this is a benefit to manufacturers and more so a benefit to American consumers.

The biggest challenge in an endeavor such as this is the push back you will receive by various organizations, lobbying groups, and large companies. Your outreach to your government officials is key!

Climate today: It is Xenophobic to support USA mfr. It is simply being self reliant. Which we advocate for all countries. WHY? Because 50 million cars worth of CO2 per Cargo Ships EVERY WHERE in the world, IS a problem! We are not being green, we have simply shifted our #CarbonFootprint.

With your support in doing the right thing, we can make it happen! Truth and Transparency in American Made and American Assembled. Consumers have the right to know. Thank you!
