Have you heard about the Great Cloth Diaper Change yet? Leading up to Earth Day (April 22nd) the Real Diaper Association (a non-profit cloth diaper advocacy group) is hosting Real Diaper Week (April 16-21st) and the 2nd Annual Great Cloth Diaper Change (April 21st).
Did you know that 90% of the diapers changed in the U.S. are into disposable diapers that sit in a landfill for over 500 years in hopes that they will one day decompose? – Real Diaper Association
In 2011, the Great Cloth Diaper Change set a Guinness Book World Record for the most cloth diapers changed at the same time with 5,026 participants at 127 locations around the world. For this years event we already have 292+ official events planned and we WILL break last year’s record. With your help we can reach even more families and share the benefits of using cloth diapers. Cloth diapers are Real Simple, Real Diapers!
During Real Diaper Week we are inviting bloggers, manufacturers, retail stores, organizations, and other environmental groups to join our Real Simple, Real Diapers Blog Hop. We’ll be sharing your posts on Facebook, Twitter (#GCDC2012) and Pinterest to help raise awareness about cloth diapers and the Great Cloth Diaper Change.
