PLAYA – INTERVIEW: JENNIFER GANTT

Sudds & Sunshine Cloth Diaper Services LLC

Why did you choose to conduct my business affairs in the Silicon Beach area? How did you get there?
–I grew up in Playa del Rey and lived there for over 20 years and moved to smaller communities after and decided six daughters later I would start my own cloth diaper and plant-based weekly diaper delivery service. The environment is important to a lot of people and I’m just trying my best to keep diapers out of landfills. I felt this community is family friendly and supports the eco-friendly lifestyle so that’s why I chose this area.

What has been your greatest success in your career? How has it influenced your business?
–Sudds & Sunshine Cloth Diaper Services LLC is new and I’m excited to start this journey trying to protect the environment. I have used cloth diapers on my children and now discovered there is an easier option of a plant-based, eco-friendly disposable diaper that I pick up weekly and take to a bio-active landfill and they turn the waste to energy!

What is your favorite business in the Silicon Beach area? What makes them special?
–Well, I have to say I don’t particularly have a favorite because I like a lot of the shops on the Runway in Playa Vista but my favorite may be the Huzzah! Popup Toys. They are special because I love children and babies and they have a great selection of toys. Another business I love is Westside Grooming a local mobile dog grooming service. I grew up with the owner Crystal Caraveo and she helped spread the word of my new business.

How has working in Silicon Beach influenced the way you approach your business?
–I just love the whole community of Playa Vista and the Farmers Market on Saturdays. It is a very family friendly, beautiful community. I always notice a lot of happy children and babies when I’m at the farmer’s market or at the community parks. That definitely influences the way I approach my business.


YES OR NO QUESTIONS:

Do you believe in ghosts?
–NO I do not believe in ghosts.
Have you ever traveled outside of the U.S.?
–NO I have not traveled outside the U.S.
Are you scared of rollercoasters?
–YES especially if they have heights.
Have you ever been skydiving?
–NO I have never because I’m scared of heights lol.
Do you like hiking?
–YES, I love to go hiking.

PLAYA – COMMENTARY by Paul Workman, Loyola Village:

I witnessed these two young brothers picking up trash along LMU‘s borders! This is where the rubber meets the road! These kids get it! They don’t talk the talk…They walk the walk! They told me they were sick of seeing trash along 80th St. between Fordham and Georgetown and decided to spend their Saturday DOING something about it! How refreshing! I managed to catch one of their names…Shawn. I blame great parenting! I wish the students, staff, and faculty of LMU that generate that trash would be more like “Shawn”!

PLAYA – COMMENTARY by Yasi Seirafi, Marina del Rey:

Our beloved USPS mailman Gerald’s significant other, who mothered his children, passed away recently. If you ever met Gerald, you know how much warmth he brings with his positive attitude and warm smile. It is heartbreaking to know someone so close to him passed away so suddenly from a heart attack. He serves the Marina Peninsula and Silver Strand area, and is a light to the community. If anyone can help in any capacity it would be greatly appreciated.

PLAYA – COMMENTARY by Claudia Rojas, Mar Vista:

My current license plate and registration were stolen from our car parked on the street for just a few hours on Friday. Just left the Pacific Community Police Station and they reiterated that the crime is increasing every week and car and home thefts are extremely common right now. Keep your doors and windows locked. Do not keep valuables in your vehicles and be vigilant and report the crimes online or in-person because they need to see the numbers and locations of where the incidents occur for more police support and patrolling. Keep your neighbors informed if you see unusual activity. Toyota SUV – Victoria Avenue
