Did You Know Most Chopsticks are Made in America?
There's been a lot of concern about purchasing products made overseas. You should buy only made in the USA stuff. It seems like every tag you look at says "Made In China."
Well here's a complete reversal.
It has been reported that, over one billion Chinese will enjoy their meal with chopsticks made in America.
The town of Americus, Georgia, is home to Georgia Chopsticks. They produce 2 million of the wooden utensils per day.
The reason is the area is full of forests loaded with poplar and sweet gum trees. They provide the wood of choice for making chopsticks.
