We are delighted to have been shortlisted for The Green Corporate Citizen Award! We have been working very hard to support and encourage the use of cloth nappies and this in turn has made a big difference to the environment! Some recognition of our effort would go a long way considering that we are run entirely on a voluntary basis by "fluffy mums" the very people whose time can be most precious -with babes in nappies! Obviously the perception that we are washing nappies all day is well off the reality! We're on facebook and cruising websites for fluff instead!!!
All jokes aside, our community is growing on a daily basis and we hope that even being shortlisted will mean more parents hear about us and consider using cloth nappies! Best for babies bums, mums pockets and our collective environment!
The Great Cloth Diaper Change is an international event where an attempt is made to break the world record for the number of cloth nappies changed at one time worldwide. We try to make a bit of a fuss of it and enjoy the community aspect of it too. It usually falls around the same time as real nappy week (in the UK), which brings sales and all sorts of nappy fun.
Last year there were venues in Cork, Nass and Newry and a total of 77 nappy changes in Ireland contributed to the 2013 record of the 8,301 nappies changed worldwide. We hope to be part of it all this year too!
You can keep up to date on all venues on the facebook page: The Great Cloth Diaper Change Ireland or drop us a line by e-mail for details closer to the date if you don't use facebook.
