a trusted partner for safer swimming

pioneering design for over 30 years

Becky Cannon developed the Original Swim Diaper in 1991 to support safe swimming and provide a clean, comfortable, non-toxic solution for families. 

The Green Sprouts swim & sun wear collection has since expanded to include head-to-toe coverage in a rainbow of coordinating colors and styles. As the go-to source for safe fun in the sun, we now sell 1 million of our patented UPF 50+ swim diapers and 500,000 sun hats each year.

Our swim & sun collection was previously released under the brand name i play. If you have partnered with us in the past, or used our swim diapers, rest assured: we are the same source of mess protection you've always depended upon!

our swim diapers are endorsed by the
United States Swim School Association

Our patented triple-layer protection design is trusted by parents, swim instructors, and public pools to prevent pool-closing accidents, while still keeping little swimmers comfortable.

We share the USSSA's belief that babies and toddlers should participate in swim lessons and provide diapers and swimsuits with built-in protection to help make safe, fun swimming a possibility for children of all ages and abilities.

Sip & Straw Cups

Most sippy cups are used for a short time and thrown out—creating waste that hurts the environment as well as your wallet.
