What is the SI?
The SI is the International System of units, also called the international metric system. It is the only authorized measurement system used by nearly every country of the world, with the strange exception of the United States. But metric-only labeling is coming to America! Are your ready? Your customers are! American public education systems have taught the SI to students for decades now and most young and middle-aged Americans are more capable of handling metric units than they are the previously customary U.S. units.
This universal language of measurement promotes ease of communication in commerce, tourism, and technology. Do you want to take part in this?
