Are you supporting America by buying American made and American produced products? Here are a list of some foreign made items you might be buying not knowing there are similar products you can substitute that are U.S.A. made instead.
Some brands of water are so widely advertised that the ads sway people into buying them and the people don't even read the labels. One such item is Perrier sparkling water. This, when known to be a product of France can be eliminated if you want to support America and buy American products. Actually some similar fizzy water can be made right at home with an American made siphon king device with cartridges inserted to make it whenever you want it. Even if you don't know this is a French name, now you are informed it is a French product and not American.Evian and Sparkletts water are other foreign made water products.
For years the American made products have been declining since consumers have not read labels and instead bought according to advertisements on TV and in magazines.
