When I spoke with Sarah, founder of Piperoos, she was navigating the kind of day that any of us working mamas are all too familiar with. Work meetings, childcare musical chairs, and a little one that’s down for the count (meaning extra snuggles are in order – the silver lining of it all).
As if she wasn’t busy enough, Sarah is on an admirable mission to create environmentally conscious baby products with the ultimate goal of carving out more quality time with her daughter Piper.
Sarah set out to create all-purpose pads similar to cloth diapers and the homemade flannel pads she received as a gift before Piper was born. Her “environmental compass” was to make Piperoos with all organic cotton, recycled packaging, low impact dyes — and locally made to cut down on transportation impact. She even pays to offset the carbon footprint of shipping.
Sarah and I share a desire to help other “corporate” mama-to-be’s prepare for and return from maternity leave. While that’s a whole other topic in itself, it was a pleasant surprise to find someone else from the “made in the USA” community with similar experiences and passions.
