How do we ensure quality products when they are made in China?          

Product quality is at the top of our priority list. Next to making 1000% sure that all our products are made ethically and in a safe environment for all our workers.


We put a lot of effort into determining beyond a shadow of a doubt that the manufacturers we choose to work with maintain a safe working environment and provide for their employees.

 

Here's a blog we wrote a few years ago, detailing how we chose to work with our current factory: http://blog.lilhelper.ca/cloth-diaper-manufacturing/


Recently, we rejected working with another factory for a reason, most folks might not be able to guess: https://youtu.be/BxlsGVOeX_4


We also explain in detail all the materials that go into making our Charcoal Diaper: https://youtu.be/gJdutumkebE


We also completed a CPSIA certification, to ensure that our diapers meet all the safety standards. This test is not required for cloth diapers but we did it anyways for our peace of mind and for our customers.

We are the only cloth diaper that is available on Costco.ca, Walmart.ca and Toysrus.ca. The amount of tests and documentation that we have completed to get into these stores gives us nightmares till this day :)


On top of that, our CEO, Mohammed, visits our workshops in China at least 2 times a year, unannounced, to make sure everything is as it should be. His latest visit was in October 2018, so we are reassured heading into another year of production that all is as it should be with the workers and our product quality.


I hope you know that we are good people. Not nice - GOOD people. Being nice is being polite or just putting up a front. But it takes a ton of time, effort and sustained commitment to do the right thing to earn the title of being a good company.
