Our Core Values

When Melissa and I were in our conceptual phase we envisioned a company that was socially conscious and environmentally responsible. A company that supported our economy by creating green jobs, manufacturing in the USA of components in the USA. Most importantly we wanted to create a diaper that encompassed all these things while being soft, comfy, absorbent and safer for babies.

I am proud to say that we have, at least in part, hit all of these goals.

We are socially conscious.
At least 75% of our staff are single mothers from domestic violence shelters. We aren't giving them a hand out, these are well trained workers who needed a break. They create the beautiful diapers that we make today. We employ these women because we believe in them and we support mothers.

Have you met our sales reps? All but two of our reps are mothers who work from home, sometimes taking their babies on sales calls with them. Melissa and I made the decision to hire mothers as a way to empower women to generate income and raise their family without having to choose.

We are environmentally responsible.
Most people know that LolliDoo diapers are recycled, recyclable, re-usable and certified organic. But did you know that we re-purpose our manufacturing waste into packaging? Our materials are printed at Arizona Lithography using wind power on recycled paper with soy based inks. Melissa and I are trying to get a grant to build or renovate a building using as many renewable resources as possible. We also donate 10% of our profits to the Water Keepers Alliance. One of our dreams is to create a non-profit to educate the public on water consumption and quality.

Green jobs.
By manufacturing in the USA we create jobs. By using only domestic components we support other American businesses, especially the organic cotton farming industry - which you may know is floundering.

As for the final product we manufacture - LolliDoo Diapers, well they are soft, absorbent, comfortable and safer for babies. They are highly breathable and we even came up with a nighttime solution for heavy wetters.

Melissa and I want to make a difference in the world. We not only want to support our families but our babies, our planet and our economy. When you purchase a LolliDoo Diaper - rest assured that you are supporting a company with the purest of intentions.
