Do you use cloth diapers?
Are you going to be at your local Great Cloth Diaper Change event on April 21st?
I am! Last year I missed it (I can’t think of why but I remembering debating it and having something we just couldn’t miss) so this year I am really excited. I am hoping to meet some of the local cloth diapering moms I’ve been chatting with on Facebook and hitting up the Baby Expo that will be running beforehand.
I seriously can’t think of a more fun way to spend Earth Day!
If you are interested, you can check out the Great Cloth Diaper Change website and search for a location near you. I know there won’t always be something convenient, events tend to be hosted by cloth diaper retailers so you might be out of luck unless you have one close or you want to make a trek. But, there *are* over 5,000 locations worldwide so you might be lucky!
Did I mention this is a worldwide Guinness Book of World Records event? It is! They are going for the record for most simultaneous cloth diaper changes worldwide. The event was established by the Real Diaper Association to promote the benefits of cloth diapering in our communities and this year the event takes place on Earth Day.
If you are in Minnesota there are 3 events in the Twin Cities Area:
In Edina: Growing Green Babies Expo from 10-1 hosted by Welcome Baby Care. Please be in place for the diaper change by 11:00!
In St. Paul: Hosted by Peapods, Do Good Diapers, and Baby Love. Please be checked in by 10:30 and in place for the change at 11:00! (Space is limited so sign up early.)
In Blaine: Baby Expo from 9-11, hosted by All Things Diapers. Please be in place for the diaper change by 11:00.
Don’t forget to take a picture during the change and send it off for this!
To celebrate the Great Cloth diaper Change, local cloth diaper retailer SoftBums is giving away a SoftBums Omni to one of my lucky, wonderful, cloth diaper loving readers.
You may have read my review of the Omni back in January during the 30 Days of Dipes giveaway event. I must say we have gotten much more comfortable with the Omni since then and I really love it’s versatility!
So, what are you waiting for? Find a location, clear your calendar and pick out the cutest diaper in your stash (NO Hybrids, must be completely reusable) and get ready! The Great Cloth Diaper Change is only a few days away!
To enter the giveaway for the SoftBums Omni, head on over to my Current Giveaways page! Check out the other cloth diaper giveaways to promote GCDC while you are there as well!
Giveaway is open to US Residents and runs from 4/13 to 4/27.
