Was this blog made in China?

Shameless, shameless plug here for the chance to win a prize:

www.notchinamade.net


There is a new website floating around that is following the Chinese toy recall and many other issues concerning Chinese manufactured goods. This website is a great resource for those who are trying to follow the recalls as well, since other sites can be confusing to follow. They are also sponsoring a contest, where you can win a $50 gift card to American Apparel. Since this happens to be Ben's favorite clothing store, I thought I'd give it a spin! If you are not familiar with American Apparel, you should be. Read about them here!

I often don't think about who is making that 2 dollar tshirt that Margot is wearing, but reading this blog reminded me that it is often a child, not too much older than my sweet baby who is working in sweatshops half way around the world to bring it here.

Thanks to one of my favorite reads, Mama C-ta for the contest tip, inspiration and continuing laughs.

If you would like to enter the contest, you can find the rules here: Knowledge is Power!
