Tax Treatment of Testamentary Trusts
Tidy Tushees Diaper Service was founded in April 2008 and since that time the company has saved hundreds of thousands of diapers from local landfills and we have expanded our service to include families from Vernon to Penticton. Tidy Tushees are the local experts when it comes to diapers and we are happy to share our expertise with free in-home, telephone or email consultations for all your cloth diapering questions. We offer free delivery in Kelowna as well as an affordable “Try Before You Buy” program so families wanting to cloth diaper on their own can “test” the diapers before they invest.
Hi, my name is Michelle Muhlbach and I am the owner of Tidy Tushees Diaper Service! I started researching cloth diapers while pregnant with my daughter in 2010, as I was always looking for ways to lessen my carbon footprint. Given that the average baby uses between 5000-7000 diapers (producing more than a tonne of waste); parents can make an enormous environmental impact simply by using cloth diapers.
It was only after meeting with Tidy Tushees previous owner, Kelly Paley, that I learned about all of the other possible risks associated with the plastic and chemicals in disposables. Diaper manufacturers don’t have to release what is in their diapers, yet studies show that our babies are facing increased risks of cancer, respiratory illnesses including asthma, chemical burns and skin sensitivity and even declining fertility rates directly linked to the use of disposables.
Tidy Tushees makes it easy for families to use cloth diapers. Soft, absorbent, fitted cotton diapers are delivered in a waterproof nylon bag each week. The diapers don’t appear to be any different than other diapers with the same shape and snaps to make them easy to use. Parents or caregivers simply change their baby the same way they would with disposable diapers, but instead of tossing the soiled diaper in a garbage bag (where it will take more than 500 years to break down in the local landfill), it goes into the delivery bag for pick up and laundering. That’s it, no dunking, rinsing or soaking. Just change your baby and help change the planet!
Cloth diapers aren’t any harder to use, will save families money, will reduce the incidents of diaper rash, will encourage children to potty train sooner and will have an enormous environmental impact.”
I was hooked and as luck would have it Tidy Tushees came up for sale about 10 months down the road…enter David Miles! At the outset I found myself thinking “How hard can this really be, it’s the sale of a business between moms”, however I quickly learned that there was a lot more to it than that! David was essential in my purchase of the business and ensured that the purchase and all transactions ran smoothly and without any surprises, which allowed me to focus making my new venture a success!
What’s upcoming for Tidy Tushees? In conjunction with Earth Day this year Tidy Tushees will be hosting the Great Cloth Diaper Change at the Laurel Packinghouse on April 21st! The Great Cloth Diaper Change is an international cloth diaper changing event, which will attempt to break last year’s Guinness World Record of 5,026 cloth diapers changed simultaneously. Wish us luck!
