Big changes often start as small ideas. The Great Cloth Diaper Change is no different!
What started as an idea by Judy Aagard, owner of Tiny Tots cloth diaper store in California, has evolved into an international effort to promote cloth diapering as the only eco-responsible and fiscally-responsible choice in modern times.
Celebrate Earth Day 2011, by joining the North American and International cloth diaper community on Saturday April 23rd, 2011 at 10AM MST to set the Guinness Book of World Records for the most cloth diapers changed simultaneously around the world.
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. 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!”
The eco-POLITAN Cloth Diaper Store in Lakewood, Colorado has been selected as one of hundreds of locations around the country (and beyond) to be an official host location for The Great Cloth Diaper Change. Every host location needs to be a public location with a minimum of 25 participants to be counted in the offical worldwide total.
If you are located in the Metro Denver area, please mark your calendar to join other Denver area parents on April 23rd at eco-POLITAN for the event. eco-POLITAN Cloth Diaper Store is located at 437B South Wadsworth Blvd at the SW corner of Wadsworth and Alameda in the Lakewood City Commons shopping center across the street from Belmar.
