It’s April and April brings one of our favorite events,
THE GREAT CLOTH DIAPER CHANGE 2015!
On April 18th at 10 am we will gather for some festivities and the change at 11am!
The Great Cloth Diaper change is a Guinness Book of World Records Event held annually to see how many cloth diapers can be changed globally at the same time in each time zone. It is a fun event intended to raise awareness on cloth options as well as spread the cloth diaper love.
Bay & Bee is an official world record site!
This year there are 278 participating locations across 18 countries. We hope to exceed last year’s total of 8,459 participants.
I started cloth diapering my son in 2009. Not only did I save money through using cloth, see the lack of waste benefits, I also made amazing friends.
Why Cloth Diapers?
Reusable cloth diapers have many benefits, including:
- Environmental: Cloth diapers reduce waste for families with children in diapers by more than 50%.
- Financial: Cloth diapers allow families to save more than $2000 per child.
- Health: Cloth diapers help parents reduce exposure of their babies’ skin and lungs to the chemicals in disposable diapers.
- Cute and comfortable: Parents love putting soft cloth diapers, available in a variety of styles and patterns, on their babies.
- Convenient: Once you’ve purchased your stash, no more weekly trips to the store to purchase more – simply put a load in the laundry!
