“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 with qualifying locations in 15 countries, spread across 5 continents, 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.”
To date, there are more than 50 parent/baby pairs registered to participate in the San Marcos event, which equates to approximately 150 people anticipated to be in attendance. The event will take place at 11:00 am at theMovement Church, 1609 Capalina Rd, San Marcos, CA 92069. In addition to the Great Cloth Diaper Change world-record setting activity, there will also be non-diapered child activities, vendors, textile recycling, raffles, and food and beverage.

About The Great Cloth Diaper Change: In its fourth 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 2013, more than 8,301 babies were changed at one time.

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 usereusable cloth diapers (http://www.rockingreensoap.com/)
Note: The total number of participants in 2013 was 10,029, which marked our highest number yet, of individuals joining together to raise cloth diaper awareness in their local communities and around the world, 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.
