San Diego Real Diaper Circle to Host Local Sites of the Second Annual World-Record Setting “Great Cloth Diaper Change” International Event

 

[San Diego, CA] March 15, 2012 – San Diego Real Diaper Circle host two San Diego sites of an international cloth diaper changing event taking place on Saturday, April 21, 2012, the day before Earth Day and during International Cloth Diaper Awareness Week. In its second year with over 225 sites in 13 countries, The Great Cloth Diaper Change event will attempt to break last year’s Guinness World Recordtm of 5,026 cloth diapers changed simultaneously.[1]

 

“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 (and San Diego Real Diaper Circle Leader). “Building off the success of last year’s event with 127 locations in five countries, 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.”

 

The event will take place at 9am PDT at Maher Hall at the University of San Diego (hosted by Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity) and at Babies in Bloom in Vista. At the University of San Diego, in addition to the Great Cloth Diaper Change world-recording setting activity, there will also be baby wearing and baby yoga demos, as well as a variety of natural and green living businesses on hand to give out prizes and information.

This event is part of a larger (and growing) movement to change the way parents think about diapering their babies. Participants may contribute $1 (or more) at any of the North American local events. The money will assist the 501(c)(3) nonprofit Real Diaper Association in their efforts to help families across the U.S. and Canada find and use reusable cloth diapers. http://realdiapers.org



[1] Note: The total number of participants in the 2011 event was 6,363 from 203 sites in 10 countries, but not all qualified for the record due to Guinness’s policy requiring a minimum of 25 babies changed per site in order to qualify.
