Cloth diaper retailers around the globe have signed on to be hosts for the The Great Cloth Diaper Change! This is a worldwide event dedicated to spreading the word about cloth on Earth Day, April 23rd.
Heather McNamara, of the Real Diaper Association, says that “our local volunteers are finding growing numbers of parents coming to find out about cloth diapers, whether it be for environmental, financial, or health reasons - - or even because these diapers are just plain cute!” It is the hope of the organizers that this event will be an eye opener and an inspiration for expecting and new parents to use cloth diapers.
Here are the details:
· Help set a Guinness World Record™! Follow the challenge on Facebook
http://www.facebook.com/GreatClothDiaperChange and Twitter
www.twitter.com/ClothRecord and, for frequent updates,
· Date and Time is Saturday, April 23 at 9AM Pacific / 12PM Eastern ‐
which means that on a global level some CD enthusiasts will gather and
do the diaper change in the middle of the night. Exact information is
available on a local level so that all participants, no matter where
they live, can find the appropriate location and time.
· A multitude of locations will be available for families all over the
U.S and around the globe, across the ocean, in Europe, Australia, and
the list keeps growing. Parents, care givers, educators, retailers,
playgroups, day care centers – anybody can apply to become an
organizer and host a location.
· Each group/location will have a minimum of 25 participants to count
for the record. Each local event will be unique, with many hosts
planning fun family activities for parents, friends and older
siblings, leading up to the specific “change” time. You won't want to
miss the local action!
· This event is part of a larger (and growing) movement. Participants
may contribute $1 (or more) at all North American events to benefit
the Real Diaper Association, the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization
working to help families across the U.S. and Canada find and use
reusable cloth diapers.
I will be hosting a Great Cloth Diaper Change event in Toledo, and hopefully there is a retailer near you that is participating as well! For more information and to find a location near you visit www.greatclothdiaperchange.com
