It's getting to the point I will buy nothing from China. This is a real eye opening article.

I try to look at where things are made when I buy although I buy less and less these days.
For example, the almost exact same looking acrylic winter scarves in 3 stores were made in 3 different places - Germany, Korea and well I forget the third, I will buy the one in Germany as I assume it has the best worker and animal protection in place.
China? yea forget it if you have a choice in different material or any other option. They are awful to animals and are a huge market that has caused many animals to be endangered for use in the much hallyballooed eastern natural medicines. Yuck.
