Duffels lives at The Bear Mill. He strives to do everything he can for the benefit of others and for our planet. He embodies the 3R’s (reduce, reuse, recycle) at The Mill, which is run on natural water power. In fact, his fastidious use of every last fabric remnant (which he sweeps up from the sewing room floor each evening) is how the SnipPets were made. Duffels is also passionate about spreading kindness and inclusivity. He believes that all of us are equal and that we have a very important place in the world, no matter our difference.
