Practical Ways to Go Metric

There are more Americans than you might think who want to see our great country go metric.  We support the metric system because it's practical and efficient while imperial units are inefficient and hinder American economic competitiveness.  Support metrication for more high paying American jobs. 

The ship sailed many years ago for the U.S. to metricate quickly from the top down the way Australia did in the 1970s.  The best way to shift to metric is simply to use metric yourself.  It starts with you. 

For common everyday usage, you don't need to "learn" metric — just use it.
