Made in the USA Day
A Made in USA mark is a country of origin label that indicates the product is “all or virtually all” made in the United States. The label is regulated by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). In general, goods imported into the United States must have a country of origin label, but goods manufactured in the United States can be sold with no origin label unless explicitly required. U.S. made goods that must bear an origin label include automobiles, textiles, wool, and fur products. According to a 2015 report by Consumer Reports, 80% of American shoppers say they prefer to buy goods made in the United States. More than 60% say they would even be willing to pay 10% more for an American-made product.
I Forgot Day
According to the Wilco Wellness website, I Forgot Day was created by Gaye Andersen of De Motte, Indiana when she had forgotten her daughter’s birthday and anniversary, as well as her own anniversary. I Forgot Day is for all of us that have let special moments slide by unnoticed. It is a day to make amends to those we love. Make it fun, an activity to brighten your day as well as others. I Forgot Day is also a time to remember to apologize to yourself.
