The beautiful new Love Me diaper covers (gPants), tees and coordinating adult's tees are available today at www.gdiapers.com as well as at select retailers. Also available online in Canada and the UK.

"gDiapers has a history of producing products with a giving component," notes founder and President Kim Graham-Nye. "Our giving is focused on mothers and babies and the issues that affect them both immediately and in the years to come. We chose to work with HHI because we've seen the power of their work first-hand and are believers in the healing powers of touch and love. We're happy that a portion of proceeds from each Love Me product will go directly to the empowering, impactful HHI trainings."

In 2013, Hands to Hearts International was honored with a complimentary membership to the Clinton Global Initiative and was recognized by the Fetzer Institute as an "exemplar of love." www.handstohearts.org

In the words of HHI founder Laura Petersen, "In 2004, I founded Hands to Hearts International as a way to reach the world's neediest and youngest children with the simplest, most cost effective forms of healing available. Just as important, I wanted to empower women in the developing world to act for positive change in their families and communities everyday, weaving a stronger social fabric for the benefit of all."

About gDiapers:
gDiapers are redefining disposable diapers, giving parents the convenience of disposables while being mindful of babies' comfort and the health of the planet. gDiapers disposable inserts are flushable and break down completely in a home-compost (wet ones only), unlike conventional disposables which can take up to 500 years to biodegrade. gDiapers are working for a future where conventional disposables are just a bad memory and diapers are truly worthy of our children.
gDiapers was founded by Kim & Jason Graham-Nye in 2005 and has expanded from its Portland, Oregon headquarters to be sold in retailers across the United States, Canada and Europe. gDiapers was the first consumer goods company to achieve Cradle-to-Cradle certification and has been registered as a B-Corp since 2011.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when.

The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love.
