There is Nothing Wrong with Buying American

December 09, 2011

Last week we tweeted about Seattle's stance that an advertisement from a non-profit suggesting that people buy American-made products was just too controversial and would not be allowed to run on the metro bus system. As proud Americans making quality products, we were a little disappointed that products like ours didn't qualify for advertisements on public transit.

The good news is that since then, Seattle decided that TAP America's ad wasn't actually that controversial, and it's now allowed to run on the buses. Maybe Seattle realized that most of the people that vote in its elections are in fact Americans employed in America.

Thanks Seattle, for letting people like us who manufacture products, do business and pay taxes in your city have an equal chance to sell our stuff.

Reminder: you can get free ground shipping on your purchases of $50 or more of American Made products from Guided.
