“I’m looking for one of those electronic thermometers that also gauges humidity; the kind with the sensor that you put outside. I want to find one that is made in the United States of America.” The Newton Falls Public Library staff located several companies which manufactured these weather stations, including Lacrosse Technologies.
Looking at the companies, we could not find any that had their factories in the United States. Our next step was to examine websites which highlight products produced here. Some of the websites are: www.hometownusastores.com, www.themadeinamericamovement.com, www.madeinamericastore.com, madeinusaforever.com, and www.stillmadeinusa.com. The last website is interesting because you can narrow your search by state, learning about some products that are made there.
Continuing the search, our staff found an Accurite digital thermometer with humidity gauge and clock on the website www.jackscountrystore.com. It is noted on the site that “This item proudly made in the U.S.A.” We informed our patron so he could see if this was the one he wished to purchase.
