Hey green parents! What will you be doing on April 20? If you don't have plans for Earth Day yet, you should check out the 3rd Annual Great Cloth Diaper Change.
Sponsored by the Real Diaper Association and Diaper Junction, this event seeks to raise awareness about the waste caused by disposable diapers and introduce new parents to the benefits of going with cloth. The event will take place at 11:00AM local time in 256 cities in 13 countries around the world.
During the event, parents will attempt to break the Guinness World Record Book for diaper changing. The day promises to be fun, and many of the locations are holding additional festivities before and after the diaper change.
The message of the day will be that cloth diapers are just plain better for the environment. Nearly 20 billion disposable diapers make their way to landfills each year, and it takes at least two centuries for each to fully biodegrade. By participating in the event, you can help spread the word and do something special for Earth Day.
You can search for locations near you by visiting the 3rd Annual Great Cloth Diaper Change website.
