In the end, Alva is still getting some of your money and I think that's phooey since they're such an unethical company.

I thought Diaper Safari has said several times that their line is not rebranded Alva?
This..........buying solids doesn't make it okay, it's still supporting this company and honestly, I'm surprised the mods allow the co-op talk here since they company is doing bordline illegal stuff (or actually illegal but it's not possible to do anything about it because the company is in China). Shady. Also, how can they possibly argue they are paying liveable wages, using environmentally friendly manufacturing, tested dyes, etc when the diapers cost $2.30....that's crazy. (Not saying they are arguing this just that it's pretty obviously not happening).
