  • Charleston-North Charleston, SC (1888PressRelease) April 07, 2011 - Cloth diapers have come a long way in the past ten years. An event, The Great Cloth Diaper Change on Saturday, April 23, 2011 is creating buzz all over the world, & will set a world record for the most cloth diapers ever changed simultaneously. The Lowcountry's local event is Presented by The City of North Charleston & will be held at the Felix C. Davis Community Center at Park Circle in North Charleston at 12:00pm (Noon) EST.

    Parents, child birth educators, lactation consultants, pediatricians & environmentally responsible businesses agree that it is not environmentally or financially justified to continue sending billions of disposable diapers to landfills every year where it will take hundreds of years for them to decompose. 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!" It is the hope of the organizers that this event will be an eye opener & an inspiration for expecting & new parents to use cloth diapers, a more planet friendly alternative that also saves parents substantial money.

    How It All Started:
    The Great Cloth Diaper Change 2011 was initially the brain child of Judy Aagard of Tiny Tots in California, as a way to show our country & the world that cloth diapers are a real option for today's families. After initial contacts with Guinness World Records™ she saw the potential to help further enhance the cloth diapering movement, while setting a world record. The response has been above & beyond expectations. It is evident that cloth diapering has a formidable following not just in North America, but truly around the world. What better way to celebrate Earth Day 2011?
