Firstly, THANK YOU for the countless emails and notes of support we have received over the past month since we posted our ‘update’ on the gBlog. It is truly humbling. Jason and I are always blown away by the generosity of the gCommunity :0)
As we mentioned in our post, we had been facing some pretty massive headwinds the last few years, but with our announcement last month, it already feels like the winds are changing.
Kim & I wanted to reach out and give you an update on the latest news from gHQ.
gDiapers is coming up to its 10 year anniversary.
In that time we have evolved from a small start up in a garden shed in Sydney, Australia with just Kim & I and an idea, to a company with teams in the US and UK, championing the ideals of Cradle to Cradle product design and the values of being a B Corporation selling via major retailers, boutiques and online retailers.
Remember our friends in Leadville, CO? They’re Carrie and Cooper, two teachers/elevation-defying composters who recently welcomed another member to the family for a grand total of four, two of whom are happily adding to the compost pile, instead of the trash bin, by way of gDiapers (disposable inserts, wet ones only).
We wanted to catch up with this miles-high family as summer wraps up and Carrie and Cooper head back to school.
We have been living the nautical life vicariously through our intrepid friends, Jess and James and their darling daughter, Rocket. And now, we’re pleased to report: they’ve reached the shore!
“We’re safely sat happily at anchor in Hiva Oa in the Marquesas, French Polynesia, having made the crossing in a very respectable 26 days. We could have done it faster but we decided not to motor in the ITCZ (International Tropical Convergence Zone, aka the doldrums) as the sea state there was calm so we weren’t too bothered about going slowly.”
