Buying "Local"

In need of a travel mug, I was sucked in by the new fad of mugs that look like paper cups but are actually quite reusable. I had been waiting for a store down the street to replenish their stock before I splurged. Finally, after weeks of waiting, the new stock arrived... but with a twist. These new fancy mugs were now adorned with a "I <3 LOCAL" stamp. At the time I didn't think much of it, and purchased it anyway. The mug was great, the problem came about when I tried to wash it. As I flipped the mug over, I was disgusted to see "MADE IN CHINA". Now I am so ashamed to tote around my branded "local" mug... but at least its not paper right? —Would Rather Buy from China than Be a Liar
