One day when wheeling a garbage bin to the curb, Colleen decided it was time for a change. It took over a year and a half for her to make the decision to switch to cloth diapers. With the decision came a strong commitment and desire to reach out to parents and help make cloth diapering accessible. A desire to provide the education and support that is so pivotal to creating a positive cloth diapering experience. Working for New & Green Baby Co. has allowed Colleen and her Jessie to continue to make connections with mothers and babies and share knowledge which is what she loves to do.
