Earth Day officially begins this Sunday, but moms and dads are over are getting a jump start on the festivities by participating in the 2nd Annual Great Cloth Diaper Change this Saturday.
By estimating that “the cost of cloth diapering is about one tenth the cost of disposables,” the Real Diaper Association (RDA) which organizes the massive event, believes that only about 70 cloth diapers are needed for any one baby until potty training sets in compared to the thousands of disposable diapers that would be needed in their place.
The benefits of cloth diapering are many, and more parents are willingly opting out of the disposable diaper madness, and in turn, helping the environment. Last year, the first record was set at 5,026 and this year, they hope to up those numbers considerably. The goal is to break last year’s diaper changing record.
From New York to Alaska, parents will change their baby’s cloth diaper on Saturday at precisely 5:30 GMT in unison. Outside the U.S., countries such as in Belgium, Malaysia, Chile, Estonia, Israel as well as 11 other countries will take part.
