20 Questions with Janice Wong
When the pandemic started, Janice Wong was pregnant with her second child and working as a nurse at a community hospital.
When her son was born (during lockdown!) she found herself diapering two kids, which produced so much extra waste that her household trash wouldn’t fit in the 35-gallon curbside waste bin. So she was inspired to make a change to better the environment and switched to cloth diapers.
But she quickly realized when she broached the subject with friends, most were reluctant to consider the change to cloth diapers themselves. So mid-pandemic, with two little ones to care for, Janice decided to pivot her career and start a business in an effort to create an easy-to-use and easy-to-clean cloth diapering system.
The business hasn't (quite) launched - but you can sign up for updates about it here.
But while we wait for these awesome cloth diapers to make their debut - we can get to know Janice tomorrow (Friday, April 23rd) when she takes over our Instagram stories, and here with our weekly 20 Questions:
