Helping our Mates Down Under
In recent weeks many of you have seen the devastating wildfires burning in Australia.
To date 28 people have lost their lives, 26 million acres (10.7 million hectares) have been burned, 5,900 buildings have been destroyed and an estimated 1.5 billion mammals, reptiles and bird life have perished. The fires started in October and the season has three more months to run.
gDiapers roots are very much in Australia where Kim and I and the product are from. We are currently based in Australia preparing to launch a next generation, zero waste diaper. We are experiencing first hand the impact of the fires as friend’s lose property and air quality in Sydney has deteriorated to the worst in the world on many days.
We are also witnessing the power of the local community coming together to help those in need. In that spirit, gDiapers have partnered with fellow Portland company Keen Footwear to offer assistance to those in affected areas. From January 14 to 20, 10% of all sales at gDiapers.com and KeenFootwear.com will be donated to Dunmore Rural Fire Brigade.
We are also working on ways to provide care packages to firefighters in affected areas. More details to come shortly.
Thank you so much for your support.
