The Great Cloth Diaper Change 2013

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013

Mom’s Milk Boutique will be host to the West Frankfort, IL site of an international cloth diaper changing event taking place on Saturday, April 20, 2013, two days before Earth Day. 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 around the world at one time.

“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 189 qualifying locations in 11 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 West Frankfort event anticipates approximately 50 people to be in attendance. The event will take place at 11:00am on Saturday, April 20 at Mom’s Milk Boutique located at 601 S. Emma St. West Frankfort, IL 62896. In addition to the Great Cloth Diaper Change world-recording setting activity, there will also be light refreshments, raffles, and sales of cloth diaper products and accessories.

About Mom’s Milk Boutique: Mom’s Milk Boutique was founded in 2007 by two sisters, Abbie and Bonnie, who were committed to natural, eco-friendly parenting products but felt frustrated at the lack of available resources and products in their hometown. Their solution? They opened an itty-bitty storefront in their small town of West Frankfurt, IL. Five years and a few babies later, they have a bigger retail space, carry a wide selection of products, and have an on-line store! Mom’s Milk Boutique has very high standards for what products they will carry and strives to offer them to costumers at the very best price possible…all while making it a fun place to shop! They offer free classes on cloth diapering, contests, giveaways, reward points, and much more! Abbie and Bonnie created something truly special when they opened Mom’s Milk Boutique. It’s more than simply a store; Mom’s Milk Boutique is a community that serves families both near and far.

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, more than 8,251 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 event. 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.
