Corporate Responsibility is at the heart of this web site. There are 5 basic components, each of which needs a more throughout discussion (and you may comment on in Made In America Blog. Those components are:
Web Site Governance - The Governance of this Web Site is a one person task - however, feedback from visitors, members, and surfers alike will feed the Governance. The Golden Rule (Do Unto Others as you would have them Do Unto you) is the guiding light. Respect for human rights, ethical behavior and writing, and legal operation of this web site are considerations of the Web Site Governance. The Strategies, Tactics, Tools, and Implementation of this Web Site are scrutinized by the Governance implications. Where this affects outside parties, persons, communities, business, there may be disagreement, but it will be with respect for the opinions of others.
Concerns for the American Environment - We can collect my batteries in a container to recycle as hazardous materials, or put my recyclables in the proper places all on our own, and we do. How we may affect the American Environment is a question that will become part of the strategy, tactics, writing, research, and implementations on this site (We can lead a horse to water, but we cannot make her drink). Here we can discuss the Supply Chain of American Products, sourcing manufacturing, raw materials, and who follows simple environmental guidelines.
Concerns for American Communities - Community begins with our neighbors, then branches out to your development, town, city, county, state, country, world allies, and world population. Doing what is within your ability to enhance your outreach in a positive way is an obligation for all people, most especially profit making companies. This premise is one of the corner stones of Corporate Responsibility and the key to Sustainability.
Philanthropy - We Dream about having the ability to help millions of people that are starving, homeless, jobless, abused, or have potentially curable diseases. This is ambitious, but there will be a section of this web site dedicated to Philanthropy. Implementation will take a few days work, some mouse clicks, copy and pasting of Charities that I support and hope you will too. Getting people to drop money in the buckets is the difficult part. If you ever wanted to give big to charities, consider doing it here. There is a Philanthropy page where you may select a charity of your choice. Give BIG and tell them that Made In America (USA) Products sent you! A DONATE button will be on that Philanthropy page, and we manage those donations so that 100% go to help the charities listed on that page. There are also Made In America - LINKS where you can link to companies or product search engines to buy American Products (comprehensive research of Internet Sites that list Products or Product Sites). The Philanthropy page will also have Community Services, where you can put in an Effort if you cannot afford to give. American Employees - Helping Americans get and stay gainfully employed is one goal of this web site. The Work-From-Home Project page is a resource where you may list your skills, and apply for projects. There is a continuous scrolling list of projects on most pages on this web site to give you a glimpse at these projects. There are many web sites dedicated to helping people get jobs, but how do we create jobs? Americans need to step up to the plate and convince stockholders that it makes sense to protect American Jobs - Buy American Products to drive this point home. Onshore our jobs back to Americans. STOP Giving away American jobs and technologies, now. Getting this message out and understood, in the face of "just doing business" is a contrast to the obvious less expensive route. The Made In America Product Blog in this web site includes commentary on American employment, current events, but mostly Features on Made In America Product Companies. American Customers and Consumers - American purchases equal votes in some quantity that describe and back up the concept that "American products equal American Jobs". The Made In America - LINKS page has a comprehensive list of Web Sites that either sell American products, or take you to Web Sites that sell American products. Note that these Listed sites labor practices and/or sources of Raw Material are not under our control . All listings are reviewed by viewing their web sites, emailing the owner/manager, or receiving Listing submissions. External reviews may also be used from trusted sources. We do encourage that manufacturers document and publish their Labor practices and raw material sources, and what percent of each are American.
Sustainability as the end product of Corporate Responsibility within this Web Site is one point, but spreading the word across America so that American Companies may compete with global companies is very critical and is one goal of this web site. Made In America - LINKS to other sites that intend to help The United States of America will be highlighted in the Made In America - LINKS page and discussed in the Made In America Product Blog page as they surface.
If you have some time to view videos, look no further, I have selected some Videos that help to extend the influence of Made In America (USA) Products.
