What is the School of Cloth? It’s a month full of cloth diaper classes provided by participating Real Diaper Circles and Real Diaper Association businesses. Attendees of classes can get certificates in cloth diapering subjects and enter a drawing for a chance to win a cloth diapering package and select a qualifying cloth diaper charity to receive a matching prize.
Since the focus is on education and so much education happens via the internet and blogs the School of Cloth is also a virtual cloth diaper education class that takes place on blogs all around the country.
The blog hop will begin each week right here on The Eco Chic blog and will have a linky at the bottom of each post for you to link your blog or to read more blogs on the weekly topic. Here is a summary of topics we’ll be talking about each week this month.
Starting November 5th – Week 1 – Getting Started with Cloth Diapers. Tips on how to get started with cloth diapers and everything you need to know.
Starting November 12th – Week 2 – Investing in Cloth Diapers. Tips and tricks to help budget for your cloth diapering stash.
Starting November 19th – Week 3 – Diapering in Times of Need. If you truly can’t afford diapers (disposable or cloth) there are organizations who can help.
Starting November 26th – Week 4 – Diapering in Special Circumstances. Curious about how to travel with cloth diapers? Can you cloth diaper at the hospital? Can you use cloth diapers in day care? What if my family doesn’t support my decision? We’ll help you overcome any situation.
