Do you buy American-made products? Well you should. In light of the recent controversy surrounding the Olympic uniforms that were manufactured in China, there has been a huge focus on buying Made in USA. Contrary to what some people believe, it's not impossible to find American-made goods, even with the growing trend toward outsourcing overseas.
