When you support small businesses, you're supporting the dreams and visions of real people. For us, that dream began 12 years ago when we launched our first small business - a cloth diapering service in NYC called Diaperkind. In the years that followed, we washed millions of cloth diapers, worked with thousands of new parents, and learned everything there is to know about laundry science and diaper design. That invaluable experience was the foundation that made Esembly possible.
You might not know this, but Esembly is a small business! Launched last year and run by a small team of 5 working mamas.
We know that giant retailers with their magical shipping turnaround times are convenient, but let's take today to honor the small businesses that truly enhance our lives and communities. This small business Saturday, consider shopping at some of the amazing retailers highlighted below, or support a local shop or boutique in your neighborhood!
Diaperkind is a cloth diaper service and shop for NY and NJ, plus a zero waste and sustainability resource for parents everywhere.
