Conyers, GA; Gilsum, NH; Cape Cod, MA; Myrtle Beach, SC; Morehead, KY; Tuscumbia, AL - A day at the beach
Posted by LDonia on 08/09/2012
While we may be closer to the end of summer than the beginning, there’s still plenty of time for a trip to the beach.
Here’s a quick guide to keeping your fun in the sun "Made in America."
- Transport your snacks in a cooler from Conyers, GA-based Softcoolers. They promise a lifetime warranty on their American-made coolers.
- Protect your skin with Badger sunscreen made in Gilsum, NH. The sunscreen is certified organic and in 2010 was named, by the Environmental Working Group, as among the best sunscreens.
- Get comfortable in a beach chair from the Cape Cod Beach Chair Company, which manufactures its chairs in, you guessed it, Cape Cod, MA.
- Make it shady wherever you are with a beach umbrella from Myrtle Beach, SC-based Lack’s Outdoor Furniture. And, if Myrtle Beach happens to be where you are, you can take a tour of Lack’s factory and see the umbrellas being manufactured.
- Dry off with a beach towel from American Apparel, which are made in Morehead, KY.
- And finally, stow all your stuff in an American-made beach bag from Tuscumbia, AL-based Carter & Co.
