a delightful romp

nice try


“Cascadia Soapery” packaging from bars of soap distributed in a hotel chain here in Washington State. It says, “TAKING ITS NAMESAKE FROM THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST’S CASCADIA MOUNTAIN REGION…” Yeah that sounds great, local inspiration, local jobs, good for the local economy.. right? Um, no. Notice a bit further down on the package where it says, “Made in PRC”.. which means “Made in People’s Republic of China”.. so you’ve got some company that is marketing its stuff as all local, organic, and trendy.. but in reality it’s just deceptive packaging and hypocrisy.
