The Great Cloth Diaper Change World Record Breaking Attempt

| March 19, 2014

The-Great-Cloth-Diaper-Change VALDOSTA, GA – Cloth diapers have come a long way in the past ten years, and The Great Cloth Diaper Change event serves to raise awareness of cloth diapering and create some added buzz and excitement too.

To do this, several people in the cloth diapering movement, including TashEbo Baby have joined forces with the nonprofit Real Diaper Association to participate in the fourth annual Great Cloth Diaper Change international event, taking place on Saturday, April 26, 2014.

To date there are over 231 locations and counting – 173 in the USA and sites in eleven other countries including Chile, Australia, Italy and Switzerland. The combined sites are already on their way to attempt to break the current Guinness World Record of 8,301 babies changed at one time. In 2013, the overall total of 10,029 participants marked our highest number yet, of individuals joining together to raise cloth diaper awareness in their local communities and around the world.

What: “The Great Cloth Diaper Change” Valdosta site event hosted by TashEbo Baby Guinness World Record™ requires each Great Diaper Change site to have a minimum of 25 participants in order to count towards breaking the current world record. In Valdosta there are currently 22 babies registered, and we anticipate having at least 50 babies who will get “changed” at the event on the day.

When: Saturday, April 26, 2014. 10:30 a.m.

Where: First Christian Church 1905 N.Patterson Street

Why: Each year billions of disposable diapers enter landfills where it will take hundreds of years for them to decompose. The Great Cloth Diaper Change is an eye-opening experience for thousands of modern parents who choose to use a more planet-friendly alternative or those who deserve to know about their eco-friendly diapering options. It doesn’t hurt that cloth diapering also saves cash-strapped families a substantial amount of money too, especially during these tough economic times.

Visuals: Great visuals will be available: Babies in beautiful diapers! Local Earth-loving parents! Colorful cloth diapers galore! Come capture tons of excitement as we attempt to break the Guinness World Record™ of most number of diapers changed simultaneously. We will also have several local vendors, including South Georgia Babywearers Leader Liz Helms will be giving demonstrations on a variety of baby carriers, a certified car seat technician will be giving free seat checks to families, as well as some fun raffles for fantastic door prizes.

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, GCDC participants from 15 countries, spread across 5 continents, successfully set the current Guinness World Record of 8,301 babies changed at one time. Our overall total of 10,029 participants marked our highest number yet, of individuals joining together to raise cloth diaper awareness in their local communities and around the world.
