Made in the USA

Made in the USA

Sitting at my desk and surrounded by prototypes, samples, packaging and spec sheets for even more of the above (all manufactured in China), I realized I was out of scotch tape. When I grabbed the refill pack, I noticed the little American flag in the corner along with the "Made in USA" label. Suddenly, it struck me how much of what we buy and consume these days comes from overseas, and I took pride in the fact that here I was using scotch tape, Made in the USA.
It's a small thing, but it's better than nothing.
