Don’t worry we aren’t springing any new chores on you yet, instead we put together an unranked list of 5 rad dads who are changing what it means to be a father, and showing off their fatherly pride to bring inspiration to other dads, moms, and families all around.

These two dads are busy bringing all new meaning to “dad jokes”. Comedians Matthew Clarke and David Milchard team up on Youtube to bring humor back to parenthood. Convos With My 2-Year-Old stars Matthew Clarke, the father, and David Milchard, a grown man who plays the role of Coco, Matthew’s daughter.

#1 Adam McCarthy, Greenshield Organic
Topping our list is our own founder and CEO Adam McCarthy. A father of three, Adam decided to make a change to better protect families and the environment from caustic and carcinogenic ingredients. In 2008, Greenshield Organic was born. As the first line of USDA Certified Organic Cleaning Products in the USA, Adam has set the ground work for real change when it comes to how to we approach toxins in our home. Although many cleaning companies use the token word “natural” or “organic”, Adam refuses to create anything but the best— following the strict guidelines of the USDA’s National Organic Program to create a truly non-toxic, eco-friendly product that works.
“There is no need for caustic and carcinogenic cleaning chemicals in a home, school or office when today so many better and safer options are available.” - Adam
