Not only did these genius storytellers make their mark in the literary world, but the cloth diaper world too. When our designer was working on these two prints we knew they were cute, but we did not realize the true love they would inspire in the

Okay, okay! We realize Love is technically NOT part of the Genius Series… It does not say “I’m a genius” in the design like our other Genius Series diapers, but it does say “love my cloth diapers,” and what’s not genius about LOVE! When we started Truly Genius Tuesday, we said sometimes we’ll get to share a little more behind the scenes info about our cloth diaper prints, so that is what we’re going to share today. Mobber became Love We released Love on September 16, 2015, but the story of Love, its design and its name started a couple years

Last Saturday was Earth Day, which U.S. Senator, Gaylord Nelson, founded on April 22, 1970. Earth Day was originally set up as an environmental teach-in hosted at many colleges, universities, primary and secondary schools, as well as hundreds of communities across the United States. More than 40 years later, Earth Day is still going strong, bringing millions of Americans together in peaceful demonstrations and celebrations in favor of environmental reform. Earth Day has many heroes and we think it truly celebrates the legacy of Chico Mendes. Growing up in the jungle Chico Mendes developed a love and respect for nature early in life.
