I’ve found myself actively looking to avoid buying products from Made in China (Not necessarily made in the USA but just made somewhere else other than China). Even paying up if need be. I figured this made sense if I’m also actively seeking not to buy products from companies who don’t commit to social justice causes on some level. I’m doing this because I’m finding it increasingly scary how the CCP influences things; I.e., Marriott and Tibet, Rockets and Hong Kong. Anyone else doing this?
