labeling on REI's products made in China

Could we get some appropriate labeling as to where the products are being manufactured. Imported does not convey enough information, for those like me who are really concerned about the human rights abuses in Hong Kong and China. I do believe the only way to slow down these human rights abuses perpetrated by China's military and police, is to inhibit their ever expanding economy.

Hi @Westwardho - Thanks for reaching out. One of the reasons we're most excited for this online community is the ability to hear directly from our members and customers with their ideas, suggestions, concerns, and more. We have taken note of your suggestion for more specific labeling.

There are many factors that go into choosing where we manufacture our Co-op Brands goods, with our Factory Code of Conduct being a vital part of the decision process.

A previous thread, "Find manufacturing location while looking into product sustainability", may also have information you find relevant. It points to the ‘Fair Labor in our Supply Chains’ section of our Fair Labor Practices page. 

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
