Do you work in the babywearing industry? Has babywearing touched your life in some way? Then you owe more than you know to Vesta Garcia. Most of you already know Vesta. Many have had the pleasure of getting to know her well during her many years in this industry. If you haven’t though, please take a moment to read a little bit about what Vesta has done for our industry and how instrumental she has been in making the BCIA, and industry as a whole, what it is today.
We tip our hat to Vesta as the ASTM F2907 sling standard that is currently becoming law is a direct result of her efforts. For those who are not aware, the development of this standard is one of the pivotal reasons for the survival of slings and wraps as a product category in the US- products that were in previously in danger of being banned for sale.
You may have heard of ALS through the ice bucket challenges that dominated social media several weeks ago. Vesta was recently diagnosed with this incredibly debilitating and incurable disease. Please show your thanks by helping provide support to Vesta and her family as they navigate this challenging phase of their lives.
