Made Locally

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Ramblers Way. All opinions are 100% mine.

A friend of mine was very surprised when I told her about the things I do now a day. My family has a vegetable garden in the backyard, and we try to buy other vegetables in our local farmers' market. They are fresh and yes, we do help them by buying vegetables from them. They may be some difference in price, but I rather gave my money to them than a big corporation driving small businesses out of business. Furthermore, nothing can compare to the service they gave the locals. I know I have been there many times.

It worries me because I can't find products Made in America anymore, even the United States of America's flag is not made here, how sad is that? Can you find a shoe-maker in your town? I can't and that scare me too. How about one day, these corporations decided to stop sending us products from another country? What will you do then? I don't know anyone that can make toys from wood in my town. It used to be that at the corner in a small town you will find all of them.

I have a passion to preserve what America used to be. Moreover, we should start preserving it now, because if we don't, we will end up with nothing. I live in a small town, but I cannot find one single bakery. Why is that? They are being bought by this corporation, that is why. Producing and selling locally not only helping small business owners but also create a job locally. I am all for "made in America," do you? Let's support each other locally.

It really upsets me when I see where most of my clothes are made. Like you said, nothing is made in America anymore. I too try to buy local veggies and fruit but yesterday I went to a restaurant for lunch and the seafood comes from everywhere but here, which I could understand until the Chef told me that their shrimp and most of their fish is farm grown. Can we not grow our own fish either? America is in serious trouble and unless everyone pulls together to help those around us, it will only get worse.
