Our American Roots

A proud American manufacturer.

A proud American manufacturer.

usa-flag.jpgDuring this time of the year with all the barbeques, fireworks, apple pies, and small-town parades that feature one lame local advertisement after another (did I just say that?),  it’s easy to look over the reason for the wonderful holiday we’ve reduced to “The 4th of July,” or INDEPENDENCE DAY as I prefer to call it.

This is a great country. Not only have any of my grandparents and long-past relatives fought for the freedoms and liberty we have, but I’ve been blessed with the ability to be raised in this beautiful country—diverse and unique as it is.

From the very beginning, it’s been a country of promise and opportunity for many—and, from our founding, Lifetime Products has been a proud American manufacturer.

Like many before us, and during our beginnings, we started out in a family garage in Utah. As we’ve grown, we’ve seen the benefits of being a U.S.-based company. From the many people we’ve been able to employ, the boost that local manufacturing has on the economy, and more.

I think I can safely say that Lifetime, as a large family corporation, feels just as strongly about this country as I personally do. It’s been my pleasure to listen to Lifetime’s upper management as they’ve spoken about their responsibility to stay in this country, employ American citizens, and provide high-quality products for our customers.

Not to mention that fact that we make products the way they should me made—with strength and the ability to last for years.  Because this is America! Because we love this country!

(cue dramatic, swelling, patriotic music)

No, I’m not going to start reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. But, we are proud of this country, and our small beginnings. Over 25 years ago we started off as a small business that employed 15 people, and we’re now a global company, employing over 1500 American citizens.

This is our home. And in the immortal words of Bob Dylan, we “ain’t goin’ nowhere.”

Position at Lifetime Products: Product Marketing Administrator. I am the copywriter and administrator for the marketing department—writing copy for ads, scripts for videos, editing copy, and just about anything else that’s needed of me.  I get to write and edit for a living…it’s pretty much a dream come true!

How long at Lifetime Products: Since May 2012

Topics I blog about: Lifestyle and News

Favorite products from Lifetime: I love being outdoors!  Most of my family vacations while growing up were camping or fishing trips of some sort, and so I absolutely love our kayaks and tent trailers.  There’s just something amazing about getting away from the loud noise of regular life and entering a place that’s peaceful just with family or friends, whether it’s grand mountains or a mirrored lake.  But I'm definitely itching to get my hands on quite a long list of Lifetime Products.

On a typical Saturday afternoon you can find me: My Saturdays consist of at least five things—errands & cleaning, hiking, reading, writing, and spending time with family & friends.  I’m a big fan of relaxing, and the reading and writing is like a mini vacation; a chance for me to go into another world and spend time with my other “friends” for a short while.  Sometimes that relaxation extends into my family and friends time as I catch up on new movies or television shows…I don’t even dare list all the shows I’m fanatic about (Vampire Diaries, Fringe, New Girl, and believe me when I say the list goes on...).   But most of all, living in Utah gives me a plethora of hiking trails.  Taking an hour or two to get away is just the recharge I need.

My favorite escape: BOOKS.  I’ve purchased (shhhh) about $300 worth of new books in just two months and read about twenty of them so far.

Other blogs/websites I can’t get enough of:  I’m a self-diagnosed Facebook addict, but I love reading friend’s blogs, MSN Wonderwall (Yes, I’m a celebrity gossip enthusiast), GoodReads, Barnes and Nobel, Pinterest, and GrammarGirl (a grammar must-know!), and of course my own writing/book review blog: WritingMindCelebrities.blogspot.com.

Lifetime’s Community Service Gardening Project Yields Over 14,000 Pounds of Donated Produce
Man, how time flies! Its been almost six months since our annual service project with the Utah Botanical Center. If you arent aware, every year around one thousand Lifetime employees give back to the local community by participating in our community service project. Its something I look forward to each year and this year was no different; we helped clean and beautify the Utah State University Botanical Center in Kaysville, Utah. Ive had the chance to stop by a couple times since the service project in May and was amazed at how much we accomplished. I also spoke to Dave Anderson from the USU Botanical Center to get a quick update on our main project at the service project, the Food Bank Garden we planted. The garden is used to teach individuals about gardening and the harvested items are donated to the local Food Bank. Anders...
Winter Composting Tips
With winter in full-swing, that does not mean you need to quit composting. Composting in the winter and cold temperatures is still possible with these helpful tips: Keep your composter in the sun as much as possible. This is probably the same place you have had it all summer, but with the angle of the sun changing as it does during the winter, you may need to take another look and adjust the placement of your Lifetime Composter. For winter composting, keeping your compost a little on the dry side may also help. This can be achieved by modifying your typical brown versus green ratios to a little more heavy on brown. Moisture in the compost mix is necessary but too much will freeze and slow down the helpful composting bacteria, or put these bacteria into hibernation. So, a touch dryer during the winter is better.
