With the 4th of July weekend over, summer is truly upon us. And that means swimming. And what better way to support members of our extended American family then making sure that when we head to the pool or the shore, we have American made gear.
Most towels you see are made overseas, but Todd Lipscomb of Made in USA Forever features some very nice towels made in Georgia by 1888 Mills. Not all of 1888 Mills towels are made in the States, but the Magnificence Bath Towels are made right here.
If the young ones want to have adventures while in the pool, you need look no farther than Green Toys. Their toys are all made by members of our extended American family using 100% recycled plastic milk jugs that save energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Their toys don’t contain BPAs, phthalates, PVC, or external coatings. I think the coolest Green Toys pool toys are the Submarine,
the Ferry Boat,
and the Seaplane.
If you fellas are looking for a suit made by members of our extended American family, check out the Cool Tan board shorts. They come in a variety of lengths and styles. I think the Bermuda Board shorts are pretty cool.
But I would probably avoid the racing thong.
Even if you look like this guy.
Now get swimming!
