The holidays are marked with such vibrant memories we get to December and can hardly believe a whole year has past. Has it been a whole year already? I remember when... One of our favorite things to do at the end of December is look back and remember the last twelve months and celebrate what made the year special. In that spirit here is Thirsties 2016 Year in Review. 2016 was a year full of amazing new products and fabulous cloth diaper prints and colors. Starting us off in January was the release of our Valentine's print, "Straight to My Heart."
In February 2016 we released our Organic Cotton Wipes and celebrated #ClothCommunityDay. March was a noteworthy month because we started broadcasting live through Thirsties Facebook Page. #ThirstiesLive is a wonderful opportunity for us to connect with our customers and folks in the cloth diapering industry. We strive to provide excellent education, conversation, and content during our broadcasts.
April, what a big month for us! In thanks to our customers engaging with us on social media, we started our monthly #ThirstiesRealLife Photo Contest. We were honored to help sponsor the Make Cloth Mainstream Challenge and celebrated Earth Day. Finally we released a product that was over a year in the making, Thirsties Natural One Size All in One.
We released our Natural Newborn All in One Diaper and two adorable prints in May: a fun whimsical floral print, Billy Buttons, and a beautiful print, Hope, proceeds of which benefited the non-profit Giving Diapers Giving Hope.
Continuing with our line of natural fiber products, we introduced our Natural One Size and Newborn Fitteds in July 2016. We also released our Organic Cotton Doublers. Come August, we closed out summer in style with two water color painted prints, Watermelon Party and Cactus Garden.
In September, we helped spread the word about cloth diapers being a real solution for #diaperneed during Diaper Need Awareness Week. With the annual ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas October, tends to be a busy month for us at Thirsties and this year was no exception. We were thrilled to partner with many of our retailers and reveal our new Outdoor Adventure Collection right from the trade show floor in Vegas! Finally, in December we ushered in the winter holiday season with the release of our Holiday Collection including Winter Woods and Scarlet. With the launches of incredible new prints, colors, and products, working with amazing retailers, and engaging a growing customer base, Thirsties has much to celebrate at the end of 2016. On behalf of everyone here at Thirsties, we want to extend our sincerest thanks for making Thirsties products a part of your parenting journey.
