This post is part of Cloth Diapering Bloggers’ and Dirty Diaper Laundry’s Cloth Diaper Carnival VIII: Cloth Diaper Awareness. Please visit the other bloggers participating.
Here’s my BIG IDEA on how we can increase Cloth Diaper Awareness-
Let’s set a goal to meet a Guinness World Record for the number of Cloth Diapers Changed in a given period of time on a named day- “National Cloth Diapering Day”- tbd
Picture this; we pick a day to claim as “National Cloth Diapering Day” – leading up to that day, we network, post, blog, tweet, and get the word out. We pick three key cities and coordinate a big 3 hour play date in the park. During this time we have Cloth Diapering Stations set up for easy changing and documentation. We keep track of the number of diapers changed and we also can then calculate the number of disposables we saved from the landfills. Our goal will be to set the number of cloth diapers changed in 3 hours world record (pending Guinness World Record Approval). What do think? I bet we could make this a go, hey – we may even be able to get a Guinness World Record rep to join us at one of the events, which would really increase our press exposure.
Let’s invite non cloth diapering moms to attend the event and try cloth diapering and learn from the experts – other moms, dads and caretakers. We can get our awesome cloth diaper manufacturers to send their reps out to help answer questions.
Exceeding the record will be fun next year- but first we have to Set a Record, right?
