“Great Cloth Diaper Change” International Event
OSWEGO, NY April 20, 2013 – MOTHER EARTH BABY www.mebabyshop.com will be host to the Oswego, NY site of an international cloth diaper changing event taking place on Saturday, April 20, 2013, from 10:30am to 3:00pm, 2 days before Earth Day and during International Cloth Diaper Awareness Week. In its third year, The Great Cloth Diaper Change event will attempt to break last year’s Guinness World Record™ of 8,251 cloth diapers changed simultaneously at 189 locations on 4 continents.
“Each year billions of disposable diapers enter landfills where it takes hundreds of years for them to decompose, if ever,” says Heather McNamara, Executive Director of the Real Diaper Association. “Building off the success of last year’s event, we hope to show the entire world that cloth diapers are a real option for today’s modern families, particularly catching the eye of expecting and new parents who may be seeking more planet-friendly and affordable alternatives to disposable diapers.”
Last year Oswego, NY had 25 mom and baby pairs participate in the event. This year our goal is to double this with 50 mom and baby pairs qualifying towards the world record attempt. This year’s event will feature Oswego’s First Annual “Healthy Baby Expo” featuring various event booths representing area service providers, natural and green living companies and other family-friendly activities. The event will take place at THE YMCA ARMORY located at 265 West First Street, Oswego, NY 13126.

About The Great Cloth Diaper Change: In its third year, The Great Cloth Diaper Change is an international initiative organized with the help of the nonprofit Real Diaper Association designed to show the world that cloth diapers are a real option for today’s families. The brainchild of Judy Aagard of Tiny Tots in California, Aagard says she came up with the idea in an effort to host a family event celebrating Earth Day. The Great Cloth Diaper Change has morphed into an exciting Guinness World Record™ breaking event, and in 2012, 8,251 babies were changed simultaneously.
